Oh it took a couple years before my big guy Beau started placing in barrels.
Takes a while to get them used to the gaming environment too.
I doubt anyone would care if you are "good enough to show" at a gaming show.
We always have people of all levels at the shows I go to. In fact, I'd rather see a rider taking their horse slow and correct through a gaming event, than someone blasting in there with no control of their horse whatsoever.
I'm starting from scratch again with Red so it'll be awhile until he brings me home any awards (hopefully, anyway!). So we'll be one of those ones going slow! I only got him to one gaming show last year, and we just trotted most of our stuff. Nobody cares!
Heck, I pretty much just volunteered my entry fee for someone else to win, LOL. Ideally, it should make the winners happy when there are lots of slow people.
