This thread is dedicated to those of us who enjoy showing Halter... share you technics, thoughts, pix, plans etc...

And here's a thought, for those in discussion about showing more "European Style"... why not Attend VEGAS instead of Scottsdale ! IMO, a more intersting show, where they utilize a score card, use foreign judges who may be more accustomed to seeing a less Hard stance, better time of the year ( April VS Feb. ) ...

Personally I'd rather take VEGAS By storm in 2011, than give my hard earned $ to the Scottsdale show...but then that's just me ;)

I watched part of some European style championships and it was interesting to me. They don't mess around or waste time, though the arena was too small to be showing movement. A good judge should be able to evaluate the quality of a horse quite quickly if it is presented correctly and they know what to look for. I think some of the American judges dog it on purpose so they can blame the scorecared. We enjoy showing our horses both in halter and SHIH. Our view is that if they can't stand up to the competition in SH, they should not be shown as breeding animals at all. I am one of those who puts conformation and movement before pretty, but won't hesitate to show a prettier type horse in halter too.

Patting you on the back for bringing this subject up. Vegas hopefully - someday! For someone who has loved to show halter from teenager on and now too old to run around the ring - its still my favorite class and still dreaming here. One thing different then when I was younger, I also rode into my later years. My very first big show I ever attended other then state ones. I got to meet all the people who ran that show back then - our icons in this industry really (Gainey, Chauncy's, Lasma, Simms, Brusally, Clays, and many more). They actually gave me the time of explaining classes to me and even breeding classes. It got me pumped for sure and left me with hopes that someday, just maybe, someday, I can have horses like theirs and as good. AND one of the most important thing was they became friends to a very young girl full of question. BUT in all truth, I still would like to see one of my horses shown at Scottsdale (may not be me tho).

i love to show halter! unfortunately, due to my work schedule this year, we are only going to show pinto. someday, tho, it would be fun to just schedule all class A shows and see how we do. maybe next year..... i work every other weekend and so some years i show in one club and other years i do a different one.

vegas would be VERY cool. do they have half-arabian classes?

Heather......you know what? This is actually a really good idea! It is hard for me to get away in February as it is income tax season and my husband and I are income tax professionals (well he is...........I just do everything else associated with the business....phone calls, appointments yada yada, all the administrative duties.....in other words I do most of the work.......:lol:) Anyway, I have heard that the Vegas show is a much more laid back atmosphere than Scottsdale. I have heard nothing but good things about the Vegas show and I like that they DO use the scorecard there :) I won't have anything to show until 2011, anyway, so this sounds like a great plan to me!!! Not knocking Scottsdale folks....it is a great show for sure and I would absolutely love to show there someday!

Kindly,

Ann
