Show Guide - In-Hand
Showing a Palomino in BPS Affiliated Classes – Turn-Out Rules and Tips
Turn-Out for BPS Affiliated IN-HAND Classes
- Free mane and tail – this simply means No plaits. The mane & tail may be pulled, trimmed or full. This applies for ALL breeds and types
- Hogging or partial hogging (exaggerated bridle path) is not permitted. This applies to ALL breeds and types
- No falsification of markings – ie creating white markings where they don’t exist
- Hooves – do not paint white hooves black (that would fall under falsification of markings) clear oil is best so that the natural colour of the hoof shows through
- Highlighting of facial features should be kept to a minimum. The aim is to extenuate the features
- Trimming of tactile hairs around muzzle – the society recognises that this is a common practice; however the removal of these hairs should be avoided
- Tactile hairs around the eyes should not be removed
