show halter

anonymous asked:

Do you think 2 years old is too young to be training showmanship/ground work? I was just at a showmanship clinic and someone was there with this 2 year old horse, so just wondering what your opinion is...

definitely not, there’s nothing wrong with training a young horse to have manners or show in halter/in hand classes. 

Because I think Arabians are super awesome and here is a whole list (in progress) of Tumblr equestrians who can tell you the same… If you ride/show/own Arabians or half-Arabs reblog or like this post to be added to the list!

anonymous asked:

Hi! I'm just confused, what's the problem with halter breeds?

It’s not really a problem with a specific breed of horses - it halter type horses within breeds.

This is a very nice Percheron. While he’s not perfect, you’ll notice he has very nice hindquarters, big, thick legs, and a powerful thick neck for pulling. This is what is known as an “old type” Percheron, because they can easily be described in one word: thick.

Now compare that horse to this “modern type” Perchy.

Immediately you’ll notice he has a very high set neck, and it’s long - this does not aid a horse meant for pulling heavy loads. This horse has a shallow heart girth, long legs (which are thinner than what you’d expect on a draft horse), a long back, and a very weak hind end. He’s also camped out behind on his hind legs. In fact, pretty much everything about this horse is weak. He may look proud and powerful, but if you hitched him to a plow he would struggle compared to the top horse. This looks more like a Friesian than a Percheron.

Now, onto the Arabians.

Though regarded as dainty creatures, Arabians are a hardy breed. This horse is an excellent representation of that, which you can tell even though the horse is trotting. This horse has lovely bone in it’s cannons and big well formed feet (though it does appear to be in need of a trim). Though long in the back, this horse can obviously naturally round itself and carry itself in an uphill fashion without difficulty. It has an arch to it’s neck, and it has the classic dish face but neither of these traits are overly exaggerated.

It’s only fair to show a halter Arabian in motion. Look at how skinny the legs are and how small the hooves are. There is absolutely no hind end, and a very long back. While the horse looks to be rounded, it’s quite obvious the hind end is disconnected. The neck is skinny, and the face is overly dished, which can cause breathing issues and cause the teeth to become misaligned.

I explained issues with Quarter Horses in another post, which you can read about here. I hope this explained things a bit.

ELF Minstrel competing in the SSA World Championship Halter Show (Mares & Geldings Edited class) on Equus-Sims

(Hi guys! It’s been a long whiles since I updated; sorry! I took an unofficial hiatus from The Sims to concentrate on RL things a bit, and therefore my activity on ES suffered. But I’m back, a little bit! Lots has happened since my last tumblr post- for starters ELF Minstrel and ELF Amadeus earned their ES Lifetime World Champion titles! :D)
