Hi, i was wondering if i could see allot of pics of ppl showing in halter. I think it is the only way to learn allot more very quick. Our first show is next saturday (after this saturday of course on the 27th). I need some help ..pics and advice.

Quick Question:

Can someone tell me exactly in order what you do when you show in Halter. Like from when you walk in to when your done and there giving our ribbons ext.

I have faith in coco and i ..if we dont win i will still love him. Make us work a little harder to!. But i have faith. If we dont win, like i said ..oh well. At least i can say we trained hard and tried!

Please help ..i've never been to a show and missed the one i was planning on going to.

This is what happens at some of my shows (the judges usually direct you)

1. Line up at the gate, the first horse trots in counter-clockwise, wait a few moments, second horse trots in, and so on.

2. continue at a trot to the spot where the judge wants you to line up

3. Set your horse up

4. Some judges come to YOU, some judges have you go to THEM. It depends on what the judge asks. If you go to the judge, you trot to them, set up, wait for their instructions.

5. They probably will ask you to walk away, then trot farther away and trot back. Or ask every horse to walk, then trot in a circle

6.Go back to the judge, wait for them to aknowledge you, then return to your spot in line and set up.

Here are some pics of me and my two show horses in halter.



^ this is actually showmanship, but its pretty much the same thing besides the fact you do a pattern.

For just a regular halter class, you first walk in to to the right to a point the judges have chosen, then you trot a large arc around the judges and go back just about to the gate. Wait for all horses to do the same, if its a mare or stallion class the judges usually go down the line and check teeth, they don't on gelding classes. So when the judges get in position you line your horse up at the rail facing the judges and walk to them, as you get to them trot your horse past them. Again go in a large arc and around to where the ring steward askes you to line up. Set up your horse and show it. The judges will come around to judge the horses. When they have their placeings then you will either stand in place or go to the rail to wait for them to call the winners. Depends on what they ask you to do. You then take your winnings and leave the ring.

This is how a halter class is done in AMHA and AMHR. ForMiniSeasons also gave you a great description but hers sounds like a showmanship class and they are done just a bit different than halter.

Good luck and the main thing is to have lots of fun and praise your horse alot so he loves it too.

This is my daughter with her new gelding, Shiney Gold.



And her other jr gelding Spin



And her gelding from last year Lucky Four Hits The Spot

Your welcome.

The shows that do my suggestion are not showmanship classes, they are the halter classes in our state, but they are not AMHA/R Sanctioned

I love showing halter. One day im either going to be a trainer and take outside horses or have a TON of my own Amateur horses that I show in open too.

for regular halter you wait at the ingate. The judge calls you to walk towards them and then trot away and then like up. You set your horse in the pose in the lineup. the judge then goes thru the line and looks at each horse one at a time. You continue showing and keeping your horse posed even after the judge passes you because they are always comparing you to another horse in the line. You dont let down your guard until you hear the announcer say the class has been pinned. It is different at the open shows that miniseasons goes to and the amhr shows that I do.

Here are a couple of me . The first horse is Princess now owned by Cheryl Powell.





Me and Carbon at Regionals last year






Me and Teddy at regionals.






Now for showmanship this is how I looked with Carbon
