    Default English Halter class - helmet or no helmet?

    A friend of mine is showing in a halter class for fun this weekend.

    It's a 'B' show, but they are trying to start a Standardbred class, so someone has asked the local racing people to show up with their standardbreds and do the open halter. They're hoping that if enough show up, it will warrant their own division like TB/QH, etc.

    Anyway, it has been ages since she or I have shown halter.

    She's going English, so I'm thinking full getup including helmet, but I just want to be sure.

    If this is a halter class with mixed disciplines and the thing in common is the breed then wear the attire appropriate for the discipline, and pose the horse accordingly. So heck yes, wear the helmet if this Stb is going as a hunter.

    Helmet

    It's a "KILT". If I wore something underneath, it would be a "SKIRT".

    Okay, I was 99% positive that's the answer just b/c you would just look silly without that as your "cap" to the outfit. It's like going western w/o a hat... it's just silly looking.


    Thanks! Easy questions, but it never hurts to ask!
