WESTERN PERFORMANCE:


Equipment:

In all Western classes, horses will be shown in a western stock saddle. Silver equipment will not count over a good working outfit. Bridle may be either a standard plain or silver headstall with browband, shaped ear, or split ear. Stirrups shall not be tied to one another or to the saddle in any manner.

References to a bit in Western performance classes mean the use of a curb bit that has a solid or broken mouthpiece, has shanks and acts with leverage. All curb bits must be free of mechanical device and should be considered a standard western bit. A description of a legal, standard, western bit includes:

8 1/2” maximum length shank to be measured as indicated in the accompanying diagram. Shanks may be fixed or loose.

Concerning mouthpieces, bars must be round, smooth, and unwrapped metal of 5/16” to 3/4” in diameter, measured 1” from the cheek. It may be inlaid, but must be smooth or latex wrapped. Nothing may protrude below the mouthpiece (bar), such as extensions or prongs. The mouthpiece may be two (2) or three (3) pieces. A three (3) piece with a connecting ring of 1 1/4” or less in diameter, or a connecting flat bar of 3/8” to 3/4” (measured top to bottom with a maximum length of 2”), which lies flat in the horse’s mouth is acceptable.

The port must be no higher than 3 1/2” maximum, with rollers and covers acceptable. Broken mouthpieces, half-breeds, grazing, and spades are standard.

When a curb bit is used, a curb strap or curb chain is required, but must meet the approval of the judge, be at least 1/2” in width and lie flat against the jaw of the horse. Curb straps must be free of barbs, wire and/or twists. A broken curb strap or chain is not necessarily cause for disqualification.

Senior horses (six [6] years old and older) may only be shown in a curb bit, half-breed, or spade bit.

Junior horses (five [5] years old and younger) may be shown in a snaffle bit, hackamore, curb bit, half-breed, or spade bit.

Except for hackamore/snaffle bit classes or junior horses shown with a hackamore/snaffle bit, only one (1) hand may be used on the reins, and the hand must not be changed. The hand is to be around the reins; index finger only between split reins is permitted. Violation of this rule is an automatic disqualification from the class. The free hand shall not be used to support the rider by being placed on any part of the saddle or horse.

Standard, leather or woven split reins are acceptable; index finger only between split reins. Reins must be attached above the curb strap.

When referring to a romal, it means an extension of braided material attached to closed reins. This extension may be carried in the free hand with a 16-inch spacing between the reining hand and the free hand holding the romal. When using a romal, the rider’s hand shall be around the reins with the wrist kept straight and relaxed, the thumb on top and the fingers closed around the reins. When using the romal, no fingers between the reins are allowed. The free hand may be used to adjust the rider’s length of reins while working.

The romal shall not be used forward of the cinch or to signal or cue the horse in any way. Any infraction of this rule shall result in disqualification.

Ideally the free hand should be resting on or in front of the rider’s thigh indicating a relaxed, balanced attitude of the body and should be kept free of the horse and equipment.

A bit cannot be physically or mechanically altered to increase the severity of its use and may be eliminated at the discretion of the judge. Spring loaded bits are approved as long as they meet all bit specifications.

The judge may prohibit the use of bits or equipment he/she may consider severe.

An exhibitor may be required by the judge to remove or alter any piece of equipment which, in his/her opinion, would tend to give a horse or exhibitor an unfair advantage.





Optional Equipment:

Rope or riata; if used, the rope or riata must be coiled and attached to the saddle.

Hobbles attached to the saddle.

Tapaderos; except in working cow horse where they are not allowed.

Spurs; not to be used forward of the cinch.

Breast collar.

Rain slicker.

Prohibited Equipment:

Protective boots, leg wraps or bandages are prohibited. Exception: In the event of injury, the judge may permit a protective bandage.

Wire chin straps, regardless of how padded or covered.

Any chin strap narrower than 1/2”.

Nosebands and tiedowns.

Jerk lines.

Tack collars.

Martingales.

Any equipment the judge may consider to be inhumane or severe.

Slip or gag bits, donut and flat polo mouthpieces, bicycle chain (even if wrapped) and mule bits.

Any type of tie-down, hackamore or mechanical hackamore with bare metal in contact with the horse’s head.

Snaffle Bit/Bosal:



References to a hackamore/bosal mean the use of a flexible braided rawhide or leather, or rope bosal which can be used in lieu of a snaffle bit, round in shape, the core of which must be rawhide. Absolutely no rigid material or metal will be permitted under the jaw or on the noseband, regardless of how padded or covered. The bosal must be no larger than 3/4” in diameter at the cheek, to be measured as indicated in diagram #3. There must be a minimum of two (2) finger spaces (approximately 1 1/2”) between the bosal and the nose. The bosal should be properly fitted relative to the horse’s size and conformation. Horse hair bosals are not permitted. A mecate is acceptable only when used with a bosal.

References to a snaffle bit in western performance classes mean the conventional O-ring, egg-butt, or D-ring with a ring no smaller than 2” and no larger than 4”. The inside circumference of the ring must be free of rein, curb or headstall attachments which would provide leverage. The mouthpiece should be round, oval or egg-shaped, smooth and unwrapped metal. It may be inlaid, but smooth or latex wrapped. The bars must be a minimum of 5/16” in diameter, measured 1” in from the cheek with a gradual decrease to the center of the snaffle. The mouthpiece may be two (2) or three (3) pieces. A three-piece with a connecting ring of 1 1/4” or less in diameter, or a connecting flat bar of 3/8” to 3/4” (measured top to bottom with a maximum length of 2”) which lies flat in the horse’s mouth is acceptable. A loose curb strap is optional (leather or nylon only).

In classes designated for two-year-old horses, a three-piece mouthpiece is prohibited. Two-year olds must be shown in a two-piece mouthpiece.

Standard, leather or woven split reins are mandatory for use with a snaffle bit. Reins must be attached above the curb strap.

When a horse is shown with a hackamore/bosal or snaffle bit, the rider must have both hands on both reins. Split reins must be crossed. Rider’s hands should be carried near the pommel and no further than four (4) inches out on either side of the saddle horn with very limited movement.

A bit cannot be physically or mechanically altered to increase the severity of its use and may be eliminated at the discretion of the judge.

A bosal without reins attached and used as a noseband is prohibited. A bosal (noseband) should not be confused with a bosal cinch, which has reins attached and is used as a standard rawhide hackamore.
