Performance Halter: 10 Tips for Adding the ‘Wow’ Factor

Note: These tips are compiled from articles in The American Quarter Horse Journal.

1) Fit your horse to his frame. Performance halter is all about form to function, meaning bigger does not mean better. Don’t think you need to try to make a small-framed horse look like a big halter horse.

2) Dress clean and neat. In halter classes, it’s not necessary for the human competitor to dazzle the judge; that’s the horse’s job. The showman’s appearance should complement a well-groomed horse with an air of professionalism.

3) Fit the lead shank to your horse. The shank will speak volumes to your level of professionalism, showing good horsemanship.
