Modified Falls

Some people do not like the fall of the Kerry and prefer to see the Kerry’s eyes. While modified falls are not allowed in the conformation show ring, they
are acceptable everywhere else.

On March 4, 2006 the Question of the Week was:

Does your Kerry have a fall?

Yes – a full fall, close to the standard

51%

Yes – but it’s a modified clip to keep it out of his eyes

37%

Yes – but I keep it pinned up

7%

No – I keep his fall trimmed off

5%

Only half of the Kerry owners keep the fall of their Kerry according to the Kerry Standard.

Other people modified the fall for practical reasons.

Roxy

Roxy, 2 years in this picture, goes on every ride with Pat Shepard. She not only wears a harness and is tethered to the dune buggy, but the “Doggles” really
protect her eyes. Pat says that the hardest part is getting the fall out of the way to put the goggles on. The “unicorn” approach works best.

Kerries in performance events often have braided falls or are without a fall to be able to see better.
