    wardrobe prep

    Hi if your going for the whole spectrum of shows i would go for white/cream jods/ long leather boots / shirt with stock and pin. Show jacket and hat. I would try and match the hat with the jacket ie blue and blue or black and black. Also gloves & hairnet.

    Suppling exercises?

    Insurance when travelling 16.3 horse in HB506

    I dont know 100% but trailers give recommended heights not compulsory limits - im sure ther arent any laws or stipulations stating you cant carry a horse 1 inch higher on the withers. My 16'1 horse is bigger overall other than withers than my 16'3 so it would be open to so much controversy if...
