My daughter shows her Morgan horse at high school equestrian meets (its a sport at her high school). In the rule book it says for showmanship that they horse equipment is breed specific. She was showing in Western Showmanship and they told her her show halter was incorrect. I tried searching to see what was the breed specific show halter for a morgan horse but could not find anything. Does anyone know what a morgan western show halter should look like?
Does she have a coach?
I would see if you could ask her coach (or the judge) for specific clarification.
Typically, Morgans are shown in plain leather halters. (or they can be shown "in-hand" in bridles). If you click on this link
, it's a page on the American Morgan Horse Assoc page. Particularly the bottom picture shows an example of the halter.
I tried to do some googling. Found this one
but I'm not so sure about the green? but that looks to be what the guy is wearing on the AMHA page. This one
is probably more than you want to spend ... and that might be an Arabian. (excuse my ignorance)
They seem to be a little harder to find but they are out there!
But no, Morgans are not shown in a "western showmanship silver halter" like your typical Western showmanship. Which is tough .... b/c you "set up" your horse in showmanship. But if it's breed specific, should she be setting him up in a Morgan stance? And not a QH showmanship stance?
