I have this new little filly. I think she's cute. My friend wants me to go to shows this year and I will take my gelding some but I was thinking taking the filly and showing her in halter. BUT....my only experience in halter is with Arabians and that was a loooong time ago.

Can anyone offer insight how halter works in open/non breed specific shows??

In my open shows we enter at the walk. The judge gives us the nod to trot and we trot around the arena in hand. I am standing at my horses shoulder/half way his neck. Then we come to the other side of the arena and stand. We turn and face our horse and square them up. The judge comes and checks them out, maybe asks a couple questions and moves on. Then sometimes they make us come to center and square them up again, and they look them over again. Then we exit the arena and hear the placings. I hope I helped a little bit!

Model hunters need to be shown in the "Open" Position, which is easier then squaring up ;)
