    Looking at a show schedule at Valients Equestrian Centre, there is a class for Commanchee Ridden coloured/piebald, its affiliated to PUK. Anyone know what this is??

    We are showing virgins ;o) but my daughter has a young coloured that has really took to schooling and we thought we might dip our toe in the water, so came across this class while looking at what we could enter a 13 2 native cob type in ridden classes.

    Lol, glad you cleared that up, eml! I had visions of it being some fancy dress, Native American type affair with bareback riders hanging off the sides of their mounts :giggle:

    What eml said :)

    Commanchee Ace was a v.prolific elite graded coloured cob so there's quite a few classes and championships named after him
