If you're still in school (not college) you can ask your 4h agent about it. If not, ask any horse friends you have..Is there a local arena around where you live? Go and ask them for a show schedule. You can also try looking online..Once you find out a system it's pretty easy to find shows.

Check in the paper or local horse publications for fun show information. Then check out NBHA and other organizations to see if they have any district shows close to you.

If you have any tack shops around, I'd go there and ask or look for any papers that might have or check bulletin boards. You can also join NBHA, which might be your best bet.

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

We have horse newspaper that you can pick up at any of the tack shops around here. It has all the horse related events & schedules listed in it for our region.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
