Hey Everyone,
I have been thinking of showing in halter, but I am not sure where to start the horse I would be using has no history(that I am aware of) of showing at all. I know the first thing some you will say is just go and see what it's like and take her with you so she can get used to the crowds, but I am sure some of you have shown in it and know something that can help me, I am sure anything is helpful.


Thank You

Halter is judged on how your horse is built. At the 4H level they typically have you walk and trot the horse in hand. Then you square them up and let the judge look at them (or thats how it works where i live). You should behave the same way you would if you were in a showmanship class. Your best bet to learn showmanship on your own is to watch youtube videos and read about it.

Everything that rideeverystride said. But also, I know around where I live we have a type of halter class called model halter. It's where you just walk in and stand your horse square and the judge walks around a looks at all the horses. You don't have to walk them or trot them or anything.

So halter is a little bit different than showmanship. Like these guys said^^ you generally walk to the judge and trot away. They watch your horses movement and the way he is built, his muscleing etc... However, for inspection when the judge/judges (at big shows theres usually more than one) comes to look at your horse, you dont have to use the quartering system. But since its all about your horse you dont want to be in the way of the judge looking at a certain part of your horse. When you set them up, stand so your feet are together and your belt buckle is pointing at your horses shoulder, and your body is a little in front of his nose (and to the side) when you walk and trot, make sure youre not pulling on him to get him to go (or her), precision is important. Ohhh. And for halter you can handset your horses feet or use your foot tp set them up. But for showmanship you CANNOT handset. And halter classes are categorized by gender and age of the horse. Goodluck and have fun:) halter and showmanship are my favorite classes ever.
