Any one got advice on what is involved in the type of classes which will be held at the Appaloosa Silver Buckle on 29 June? I am hoping this will be Reilly's first show and would like some idea what to expect. I did fence sit some time ago but didnt pay much attention, or maybe even missed, the halter classes (as I wasnt expecting to do that type of stuff then ). On the program under halter there is: Mare/filly - any age Gelding """"" Beginner showmanship (pattern event) Novice showmanship (pattern event) Anyone know what is the difference? Even if we get him in the one halter class (geldings that is), just getting him out and experiencing the environment should be good for him, hopefully. Any advice would be appreciated please.
