I am a dressage rider who is going to be dabbling in some AQHA and pleasure shows with my old man. My friend who does Western Pleasure says I have to trim his whiskers to have the “look” that is preferred. I have never in his 23 years trimmed them and really don’t want to.
This is mostly a personal preference but after the FEI banned it for international events, I decided to keep them even though we are not nearly that good.
Anyway, they are fairly short naturally and mostly white. Will we be that out of place unshaven?
