Show equipment is terribly expensive, haha, if I had the money to get it, I'd go for it this year. Not to mention the show entry fees, too!

What level are you wanting to show at?

I myself just go to local small shows to do halter, western pleasure, reining, competitive trail, etc. A lot of them will also have some gaming events after. Most of those local shows will have a low entry fee ($2 to $5 an event) but usually don't pay any money back; you get membership points instead for year-end awards.

The shows I go to, they actually discourage big silver show saddles and chaps and bling because they want to keep it open to any level. So I do all the events in my barrel saddle, LOL, even the western pleasure.

But I make sure my horse looks clean, my tack is clean, and so I am! Being neat and clean with basic stuff will beat being "rich but sloppy" any day. It's all about presentation.

Although a lot of the local gaming shows I go to, they will have added money in addition to paying back a portion of the entry fees. Those are at least helpful because if you do do well, you can hopefully earn back your entry fees. My mom and I always say it's just icing on the cake if we can earn enough back to also fill the truck with diesel! But we don't do it to win money (although it is a nice perk). We do it because we enjoy it.

But for the gaming shows, there is not any "show tack" that is required. The show might have a long sleeve shirt and hat rule, but that's about it.

So which show equipment are you needing to get in order to do gaming?

I think my Showing ignorance is becoming apparent, haha!

I would need to look up what requirements are necessary in my area, but what you stated helps a lot, beau! Maybe I might do a show this year after all!

If you are going to a gymkhana there shouldn't be any requirements. None of them are here. It's possible they may ask you for a long sleeve shirt, but none of our local ones in the southern oregon area do. The added money barrel races ask for a hat and long sleeve shirt but not for small speed events.

Are you going to do open barrels?

Everytime I've heard of Gymkhana, it was for 35+ years old-- then there was the youth barrels-- then open 18+ you payed a fee of 10 bucks for every event, and it payed a percentage of it back to the first, second, and third place winners-- all separately.

Its all in good fun and I always meet new people.. I can't wait till this summer, so I can get me a fancy pants show horse. :)
