    Hello all *waves*

    I've recently bought a new mare to join my other two mares, except this one has a job to do.
    She's been very successfully shown [in hand and ridden] and been to the top shows in the UK and placed [if not won] I have bought her with the intention of learning the ropes in the showing world with her, and I'll teach her how to show off and be a good Dressage diva :)
    She's only 6 years old, so while she may have been doing this showing stuff all her life, I have not. Except the odd class at our local show [although it's a busy and competitive show] with my old hairy cob..
    How you can help...
    Is there anyone out there with a Coloured Native who shows?
    What else do you enter [ridden] class wise, if you aren't competing in the Coloured Native classes?

    She is registered with Welsh Part bred Society [green passport], and with CHAPS & BSPS

    As a part bred she wouldn't be in Mountain & Moorland classes as they're for purebreds. She could do coloured classes &, depending on type, show hunter, riding horse or working hunter.

    Pulled and plaited for PB Welsh classes. Coloured classes. Or, depending on her type, riding horse, cob or hunter classes.

    Whatever class she does well in. Check her show record.

    I think Shetlands are the only pure bred UK M&M that are allowed to be broken colours?

    In 2013 she won the Welsh Part Bred class at the National Welsh Championship Show - UNplaited [with her then owner]
    [see photo]
    Her mane stays at 6" long, suitable for the Coloured Native/Cob/Traditional classes [which she's always done, and done well in]
    I don't think she fits into many classes.
    But for the time being, she'll be doing local only, then some of the old dressage, and we'll see how she goes.

    And no, she wouldn't be in a purebred show, as she isn't purebred - Unless it's an 'open to' class, which is quite common at our show venues. As long as they're passported, a part bred may enter the purebred breed specific class. She obviously wouldn't be allowed in M&M.

    How big is she? She could well be to small to trim and plait up as small hunter or light weight cob. I would stick to showing her as she is as a colored native, she has obviously done well in these classes. She can do part bred welsh classes unplaited as she is turned out to type.
