I show QH’s, currently have a large appendix that I am showing in ranch riding. No braiding, banding, hoof black or fake tails allowed. Any of them are disqualifications. So when I go in HUS class, I just use a running braid, he has a really long thick mane & ideally I’d like to keep it that way for the ranch class.
We are also starting to show over fences. nothing rated, & nothing very large. My current question is for the local hunter classes, am I better off using the running braid I currently use, or should I put in some form of dressage button braid that I can do with a long mane?
