: Presentation of halter-horse in the United States>>>
The owner is a kind of show category in which animals are shown "in the hand", i.e. they are guided, not rode and assessed according to their appearance and their fitness as catteries? According to race and geographical area, such meetings are designated as "Holder", "In-Hand", "Breeding", "Model" or "Conformation".
The name of an equestrian show where youngsters are judged on their skills in caring for and presenting a halter is Halter SHOWMANCY, SHOWMANCY or SHOWMANCY IN-HAND. For most races, the issuer receives a number of points amounting to approximately 60% in relation to exhibiting or dexterity, 40% in relation to care and training, whereby the exact standard varies according to race and disciplines.
Nearly every race of equine has halter categories of some kind. Keeper categories are usually grouped by race, gender or years. There are many different regulations, breeding norms, cutting designs, care genres, the use of care preparations and the appeal of halter-disciplines. All categories demand, however, that the ponies are carefully cared for before they enter the ring, that they are in the correct manner according to their race or disciplines, and that they run and tramp on order in a certain design or line.
Sometimes the race of the ring can only be defined by the care and display. In most races, the halter exhibitor from the United States is more attracted to horseshoe polishing, headdress, oils and" gloss enhancers", silicon spray and other care products than their colleagues in the other parts of the globe.
The United States is often more fashionable than Europe, where the horse is still very well looked after, but a more "natural" way of preparing is permitted with fewer scissors and fewer care items. Sporthorses, i.e. all breeds that are to be used under saddles as competition hunter, show jumper, Dressagepferde or also Eventigkeitspferde, are evaluated primarily after their potentials Sporlichkeit, whereby solidity and Bewegungsqualität are very important.
The mane is woven in a manner appropriate to their disciplines, and their cocks are usually either woven or drawn. You are in a hunting harness fence (horses two and below can be shown in a horse harness). Apart from cleanness, lichen and simple show trim of feet, catch, ears as well as a small way of bridling, care product are reduced to a minimal and excess oil and polish are taboo.
For straightening, the horses are standing up in an "open" position in which the front and rear limbs are not aligned at right angles, but the two front limbs and two rear limbs are placed slightly in front of the other with one limb, so that all four limbs can be seen from the side simultaion.
You can keep the forehead and throat in a normal posture and the trainer can lift or lower the forehead slightly to suit the single person. The majority of sports ponies now show a "triangular pattern" that allows a look at the animal towards and away from it, as well as a side perspective of the moving one.
Trekking is done in a small triangular design, then trotting on a bigger triangular design before the judges continue judging them at a halt. Each race can be shown in a Sporthorsetil if appropriate, but the most frequent races shown in a Sporthorsetil and none other are the thoroughbred and all different warmblood-breedings.
Because of the great impact of the stallion show on the underseat competitions within the sports horses discipline, there are less differences between the USA and Europe than with other stallions. Breeding horses in the United States attach more importance to the exterior in standing presentations, although motion is also evaluated.
On the first floor there are the following breeds: Appaloosa, Quarter and Paint and similar in build. Most of the time, the ponies have to run and go in a direct line, usually approach the judges and be trotted away by the judges in order to be judged from the stands. On all four legs the stallion should be at a perfect right angle.
As a rule, the forehead is kept at a naturally angled position that flatters the single rider, not too high or too low. There is a simple show clip of ear, leg, snout, and harness track, the hoofs are often polished and the fur sprayed with silicon spray, but excessive glitter and oils on the pony are taboo.
The majority of the participants are wearing western clothes, mostly with a coat and cowboy cap, and the ponies are presented in a shallow and mostly decorated with siver. Races best known for their high jogging and classy look under the yoke or in the seat are shown in a breeze along the track and asked to stand up in a posture where the forefeet is quadratic and the rear legs are quadratic, but are extended or "parked" slightly behind the regular quadrat.
As a rule, they line up from top to toe along the track and are individually moved to the middle of the ring to be evaluated at rest, then they are trot down the track and away from the judges so that their actions can also be seen from the side. Conformity at rest is strongly taken into account, but also the "parked" posture can conceal a large number of bone defects, which makes the observing of the equine in movement by the judges very important.
As a rule, ponies are shown with the kerb part of a pair of bridles or in a very thin, ingenious show halter, usually made of noseband (and sometimes also headband) in color. Clipings are different within some races depending on race and disciplines, but the right clip is an artwork and much more comprehensive than the sports or livestock races.
Actions races are well cared for with silicon spray on the fur, oil that gives the face lustre and footpolishing. Many" Gaited"-races, among them the Tennessee Walker and the Missouri Foxtrotter, are shown in a similar way, whereby the Trob is replaced by the midsection.
In gangrasses, cleanness and pacing are highly valued and of great importance. Young Arab in his holster. This Arab thoroughbred and the races directly from the Arab, such as Morab, Welara and National Show Horse, as well as partially Arabic pied ponies, have no lichens or ribbons that hinder a natural long, free-flowing hair and tails.
If not explicitly stated as a sports horse, weaving and presenting in hunting styles is permitted. A few of them are also shown in the Arabian tradition. Conformational attitude for the race consists of dividing the forefeet into squares and the hindquarters so that one foot is placed vertically to the floor and the other slightly behind it to firm and level the relatively horiz...and to show the high tails that characterize the race.
The classification process is similar to the actions races, with slightly more focus on the stand-up for personalization. Presented in a very thin, delicate show halter with minimum decorations to accentuate the sophisticated brains that are typical of the race. handler usually wears similar clothes to those showing actions races, although some opt to use Western clothes instead.
They' re as well-groomed as the actions races, although menes and cocks are never cut or finished synthetically except by cutting a hackney. The assessment of Arab equestrians is changing and a new assessment system is due to come into force at the beginning of 2008. The new system gives a numeric evaluation of race, motion, mind, neck and shoulders, upper and lower line, as well as foot and leg, with all ingredients being equi weight.
Driving ponies are usually shown in a quadratic posture, although sometimes slightly in a park. Most of the working races have hairs woven briefly, usually with decorative ribbons or thread. Ripe ponies are shown in a harness, young ponies in a stall halter. Baroque races such as Friesian, Andalusian and Lipizzan are usually depicted in a style similar to that of any other European race, avoiding cut-off trails and excess fats or oil.
Usually presented in either a hunter's or trapeze fence or a halter, similar to those of the Arabs, they are usually heavy according to the race and part of the land in which the race is shown.
