    Trailblazers Final

    Not sure if I should put this in here or competition but worth a try. Just wondered if anyone is going to the finals for showing classes. And also who has been before what is it like? I will be going on my own do they strip and trot up for showing classes? Does the judge ride? Also...

    Advice please - Showing

    Everything as others have said above black tack is acceptable at all levels so don't worry. Brown is correct but depends how you horse looks in this. And snaffle is def okay for local level novice classes.

    Those of you without a wash box/proper washing facilities?

    I wash mine before and after with a hose pipe and never wash down in hot water. That opens the pores in the skin for mud fever. The ones that live out are just wet brushed where the saddle went and then a good brush before they go out.

    Can anyone recommend me a "low end" horse dealer?

    oh no - want rid sounds serious! What's wrong and what sort. What are you looking for in return?

    Who doesn't ride in a snaffle?

    All mine (9) are hacked out in loose ring snaffles no matter how strong. However for there other events the bits can vary. Being in a pelham for a reason shouldn't put people off.

    Does Soya Oil affect behaviour?

    Soya Oil is fed for slow release energy - for weight and condition normal veggi oil is fine and can be fed up to a cup full a day.

    Showing a black horse. Colour of tack.

    I show a dark brown almost black cob. I always use black tack on him as brown looks silly. We use black for local, county and HOYS - never been marked down!

    Showing a black horse. What colour tack?

    It is correct to use brown tack for showing, however I show a black cob and use black tack. We have never been marked down for this. The black tack has been used locally, county and at HOYS! Good Luck
