UKC conformation- what type of collar & lead?

I am planning on entering an UKC conformation show this month. I have read the exhibitor rules etc. that states the obvious of no prongs collars, etc. But the rules say no dangling collars which I can't envision what that would be.... martingales, overly long chokes? I am wondering what are people using for collar and lead for the herding breeds in UKC?

The last time I did conformation in AKC was 18+ years ago. I still have very fine appropriatley fitted chain chokes, nylon chokes, martingales, thin leads etc.

Thanks for your help.

Re: UKC conformation- what type of collar & lead?

All the UKC rings I've been in have been very small, so I have a black 4' leather show lead with a matching black rolled leather choke or black rolled leather martingale. The leather is not to thick or stiff, but not super stretchy or shoelace thin either. I wanted something appropriate for "show" but also appropriate for GSD so I ordered all my show stuff from this site:

When Nikon was a puppy I had a show lead that was basically a black nylon martingale and leash all in one.
