    Choosing show halter style

    Hello all, me again. I don't really have anyone around to ask questions about mini showing, so I am using you yet again. I bought my girlie an Arabian style and I'm having second thoughts. I love it and it's so cute on her, but I don't really know if it's appropriate for her look. I'm...

    Setting up for Showmanship & Halter

    Hello again all! So I'm trying to prepare for some open shows I learned about recently, and Miss May is coming together so nicely! She's still kind of a pill, but we're working on that. One thing I am wondering about is how I should be setting her up. All of my show experience is Stock...

    How long to wrap/sweat necks?

    Two bits...?

    I was flipping through the pages of the recent AMHA and AMHR magazines and noticed that the majority of the pictures of animals shown in harness had two bits in their mouth - one attached to the reins (of course) and another smaller ringed bit attached to the check. Currently, I have my check...

    Help me fit my mini! - How's my feed, exercise etc.?

    Looking to get feedback on getting my 9 month old mini up to par. I've had him about two months and it's been a roller coaster getting him on a consistent program, due to moving barns etc. His current condition - some belly (not sure if it's worms or hay belly, or both), you can feel his...

    I am looking for a FULL length video of an AMHA show!!! Please help

    So, I sat down with a cup of coffee and the AMHR official rule book this morning and began to read. I read every word from beginning to end and it is very detailed and informative. I "get it" for the most part, but would really like to see it in video form if it is out there. I have googled...

    Show Leads!

    I am wondering where everyone gets thier show leads? I would prefer leather but would be open to others if people really like them. I have some very nice biothane ones right now but I find them very slippery.
