My friend has this problem with her Haffie, and doesn't show much as a result. You can't do the M&M classes sadly, so I'd look at things like Best Condition, Open Breed etc

Read the rules for the show you are going to. I have come across the odd one that will allow Haffies in the large M&M class.
Usually, best condition, riding horse, anything that is not breed specific. Some have classes for foreign breeds as well.
I have even, I need to wispher this, entered my Haffie into a spotted, coloured and palamino class!;)
To be honest, I gave up on showing last year as the judge just didn't seem to like foriegn breeds and you could guess the the line-up. I didn't expect to come first, but some fair judging would have been nice!:mad:

Ridden horse perhaps, riding horse no:)

I used to take mine in all sort, WHP, things like that, you just need to read the class description.
One of the Haffys we had could compete against whizzy SJ ponies on a very favourable playing field,......they were quite take aback to see the hairball clearing and keeping up. ;) ;)

Riding club horse/ pony club pony becuase haffies are good all rounders.
cob type best chestnut, working hunter, conditon, turnout , foreign breeds are amongst some . I think all us haffi owners should always ask about m & m class when we get to a show just to make a point that they are a mountain breed.

Yes but they aren't a Native British breed, and I always thought that was one of the specifications of an M&M class?

What about Working hunter ridden?

They always have a working hunter ridden class at the breed show so yes .
Haflingers are good working hunter ponies .
They are not native mountain and moorland but they are mountain ponies, There are more and more letting them in mountain and moorland classes of course if it states in schedule that it it is a native mountain and moorland class then don't ask. I always think you got nothing to loose by asking and some will let them in.

If you drive them there are hardly any limits.
