I don't know if this will help:

The Appaloosa horse club of Canada has a detailed rulebook that I excerpted this from a few years ago:


NATIVE DRESS & COSTUME CLASSES – ApHCC RULES
613. GENERAL RULES
There shall be only one horse and one rider permitted per entry.
Exhibitors will not be allowed to use a travois or cart for safety reasons.
Babies or small children must be represented by dolls.
No Pets will be allowed as part of any entry.
Any entry not under sufficient control will be dismissed from the arena and considered disqualified immediately.
Classes should be conducted with dignity, honesty and integrity of impersonation. Any action, gesture or demeaning language will automatically disqualify the entry with loss of entry fee.
Competitors may ride bareback, astride or sidesaddle as fitting the period they are representing.
Classes will be judged on authenticity of trappings and equipment, attire of rider, markings and colorful qualities of the horse and the overall picture and presentation of the entry.
Classes will be worked at the walk and jog only, on the rail, in both directions of the arena. Entries must complete the two required forward gaits in both directions.
There shall be no “work at will” conducted during the class.
Entries may be required to “back-up” at the judge’s request.
Entries will be lined up and must stand quietly while being judged on an individual basis.
Curb chains will be permitted but must be at least one-half inch in width, lie flat against the jaw, and meet with the approval of the judge(s).
Braided leather or rawhide chin straps may be less than one-half inch in the Native Dress Class only, notwithstanding rule #243, provided it is authentic to the era of the presentation.
War-Bridles or Mouth-Ropes may be used, provided that the rider has full control of their horse.
Paintings and markings made on the horse are permitted as enhancement to the authenticity of the overall picture, if the exhibitor is aware of the meaning of the symbols they use.
Horses will not be penalized for having metal horse shoes, having a clipped bridle path, banded mane, trimmed face, ears, and/or legs, nor should they be penalized for having none of the above.

I know if you are doing historical indian costume, deciding which tribe and which breed of horse can play a big part. Google is such a great reference if you know what you are looking to show. Also check your local library. I found some great books at one of ours that I used when making mine.

I decided to make a sioux costume because I like the patterns in my weaving book. I know that is sort of generic and there are many types of sioux but it is a start. I have been searching through google images and have found nearly nothing no matter what search terms I put in. Is there is a secret code that I need, lol?
