Leadline Horsemanship

Leadline Horsemanship

A. Leadline Horsemanship will apply to the 6 & Under age
group only. If a rider enters this class, he will not be eligible
to enter any other Horsemanship class for older age
groups at that show. Rider is eligible for Showmanship at
Halter.
B. This class may be ridden bareback, western or hunt seat.
The rider will be judged on his basic position in the saddle,
if one is used; hand, leg and seat position; as well as his
ability to properly hold the reins and cue the pony.
C. Exhibitors shall be judged at a walk both ways of the ring
and be required to stop and back. The trot is optional, and
must be specified in advance on entry form or show bill.
D. If the judge asks the rider to back the pony in the lineup,
the person leading the pony should not aid the rider. He
should only keep the pony under control.
E. A lead shank should be attached to a halter under the
bridle, so that while the rider is on the rail, the pony could
be controlled by the person leading the pony, if necessary.
The person leading must be at least 14 years old.
F. Tack and Attire. If riding hunt seat, Hunt Seat Tack and
Attire should be used. If riding western or bareback,
Western Tack and Attire are required. (See Rules 102 ‐
105.) The person leading the pony should conform to the
type of attire that the rider is wearing.
