I’m showing my half Arab in a show next weekend, I’m showing in ranch horse and I’m trying to figure out if I’m allowed to use a one eared bridle in ranch horse. Can someone help me figure this out!

Someone else please feel welcome to correct me, but the only guiding rules to the ranch horse classes that I have seen show bills for is no flashy silver on the tack and no braids on the horse. I don't see why they would have specific rules on one eared bridles vs two eared vs browbands...

Hopefully one of the people who regularly rides and competes in ranch classes can offer more :)

Traditionally a one ear headstall goes on a curb bit which the horse is shown in his 6 year old year.
So depending on what association rules the show is using, the age of the horse and the bit used would determine your headstall.
