    How about try a show cob class at a local show first as Im sure they look for nice paces and not massive knee action or speedy. Do you have a more recent photo if this is a really old one?

    Are you on a wind up? You say he can't work in an outline but hey, just stick him in draw reins and you'll be at HOYS next year!
    I thought it was a wind up when the OP described her horses "rare roman nose".

    OP did say her Fell pony always wins when she is showing it on another post???? Think I saw a video of the pony on a FB group, asking for advise re showing as it was an M&M but rubbed its mane out?

    Whether it is a wind up or not my advice would be this;

    You seem to think that your pony is ready for affiliated classes. An instructor has told you he is ready. Ignore everything people on here have told you, spend 100 registering yourself and pony with the BSHA and try some classes (at approx 30/class). Invest the 1000 or so in tack and equipment required for affiliated showing. I think you will get a shock.

    Reality is;

    Your pony is too small to be a successful show cob (despite the height limits, they are expected to be 15.1hh really!)
    A "rare roman nose" is NOT desirable in any show horse
    If you stick your pony in draw reins to accomplish an outline, you will succeed only in building his muscles up under his neck, meaning when the draw reins are removed he will look Ewe-necked
    Draw reins will not get your pony to bend, track up etc
    A ride judge must ride your pony at affiliated shows; they will be able to tell if the pony is correctly schooled or been forced into an outline with gadgetry.

    I think the best advice if you really want to show is grow his mane and feathers, join the TGCA and do those classes.

    Better yet.. If you want to do affiliated classes on a show cob, buy one.
