... if there are no Foreigh Breeds class?
Scouting low level shows for some practice before the Breed Show and not many have Foreign Breeds. What could I enter?
This is him so you can see build etc. Are ok to enter Coloured classes or not ? I never know. :S
It's annoying when there are no foreign breed classes.. judges think they're bad examples of Welshies..

I have the same problem as I have a Haflinger. I used to be only allowed in the open classes and the not exc classes. I went along to the next committee meeting and said I wanted something more to enter, and they introduced an alternative coloured class, but still not ideal!

It doesn't help that all the judges think he is a Section D ...

Edited to add - Beautiful pony!

Would say probably not to coloured classes but as per Honey08 anything like riding club horse/pony, even competition horse/pony if there is a set show as that would be good practice.

I'm going to the breed show too (well, hopefully!)

I am currently entering equitation (I have no idea), general showing classes (seem to be a lot of 'generic' showing classes around here) and novice WH classes. Hopefully that will be enough to get into the swing of things :D

We have loads of 'open' classes round here so it's not really a problem if there isn't a foreign breeds class. We should be going to the breed show too although it is looming rather near and haven't really prepared at all :-/ your haffy is very nice, a nice modern dressage haffy! How tall is he?

Thanks everyone. I'm a bit wary of RC horse/pony because it tends to involve jumping which is not my forte. I might look at some Veteran classes too. If nothing suits, we'll just carrying on prepping at home.

Unfortunately, I don't own him, I'm just lucky enough to be loaning him atm, so i cannot take any credit for his loveliness.
Honey08- he is a in fact a dressage schoolmaster :) Mandwhy- He's 14.3hh :)
