    Hehehe i usually decide the day before!!! If you plait the mane then i would say plait the tail, but if you dont plait the mane then leave the tail natural aswell**)

    i think if u can canter your horse safely then it SHOULD be in the W/T/C ring..W/T rings are for horses that arnt cantering as yet or the rider does not feel comfortable cantering....JMO though.

    Hmm might go unplaited then unless i can con someone else into doing the tail for me haha

    Pinto- agreed... its a new horse so i'm waiting til closer to the day to decide if he will be silly or not to canter. **) i have 3 weeks between picking him up and going to show so plenty of time to work him out *#)

    I don't think it matters whether the horse placed or not, once you ride official your stuck there, because of the new EFA rules. You'd have to ask the EFA if thats correct but thats my understanding/what I was told anyway :)

    Once your horse is official then it's official. It's a very clear line. Doesn't matter if the rider is not official, if the horse is then it shouldn't be there.
    The program states that the show will be run according to the EWA Unofficial Guidelines for the Open Pony, W/T and W/T/C rings.

    You can still do the novelities and the fancy dress, but not the hacking classes.

    SR... you don't have to plait your horses tail if you don't want to. You can leave it natural or clip it (you clip the sides) or plait it. It doesn't matter.
    This show is a great opportunity to practice your plaiting anyhow.

    Though, if you really want your boys tail plaited I can always do it for you on the morning of the show. I'll be there early but my classes won't start until later (after the kids classes) so I'll have time to do it for you.

    you can apply to have horse downgraded if rider is Unofficial**) Not sure how it works if you are not a member of the EWA? this is an EWA ruling???

    I will hopefully be taking my boy :) Thats if I can convince my mate to come too/ take me there lol.

    Just checking, the WTC adult classes dont start till after the junior classes? So I wont have to be there and ready to go at 8:30? I hope thats the case lol. Given the travel time to Armadale from Wanneroo.

    I hope to be there. I will have my new saddle by then (it should arrive any day now) and Lark should be going a million times better too.
  18. I have emailed everyone copies of the program/entry form. Still trying to work out why the file won't work off our website!!
