    Canker doesn't usually present itself in all four feet, and isn't supposed to effect the chestnuts. I had two of my vets rule it out, but since I never 100% figured it out it's hard to say honestly....

    I agree with most of the other posters that tall boots are preferred, BUT I think it's a-okay to show in half chaps that are clean, well fitting and matching.

    No, I don't show AA shows personally...
