Other Western: Any Western performance that does not fit in the other Western classes. Halter: **Halters not required, but if they are used they must fit correctly or it may count against your entry.
It is typically best NOT to use halters in the halter division.** -If you have a breed that is not well known, it is recommended that you provide breed documentation with your model on the show table in the form of a breed description with a picture on a description card no more than 8.5”x5.5” (“letter” sized paper folded in half). -No felt squares are to be used to place models on unless they tip over easily and/or must be laid down.
In that case they may be laid on felt or other protective material.
By laying a model down, you give the judge permission to carefully pick up and inspect the other side of the model.
If you do not want the judge to handle your model, please place a note by it and stay relatively close to the show ring so that you can turn the horse over when requested by the judge.
If your model is tippy, it is best to lay it down so that it won’t possibly fall over and damage other models or itself.
