    Our first show as well RW.. we will be in the TB gelding classes though.. How hairy is everyone's ponies? My boy has been in a paddock untouched over winter so has grown the usual feathers, ear hair and a very bushy beard.

    I don't own clippers so unless I get someone out to do it for me he will have to be hairy- does this only affect you in the best presented class or do they look at this as well in the breed class?

    I am not really suspecting to do that well as he also body wise looks like a paddock pony (no muscle, pointy butt) but I always like to have my horse looking as best I can.

    Maybe if someone is handy with clippers around the Baldivis area I could swap 15mins work for a hand during the day or any other task needed?? Just a thought:)

    Dont worry my boys first one too and despite my strong efforts in defluffing him with currying etc he will still be somewhat hairy lol. I do have some chargable clippers which the battery is a bit dodgy on to attempt to defeather etc my own boy with so I can charge them again the night before and bring them down if you wanted to use them?

    show hunter ?

    hey there
    am taking a couple to this, will be doing their breed, then thought i might put them into the show hunter in hand classes too.

    Do i need to change bridles, and take off the pretty browbands? I know the standard for ridden says they should, but not so sure how closely its followed in hand?
