So I really, really want to try team penning! Here's my horse
His name is Rocky and he is an 18 year old appendix quarter horse. I know he is a little old but he still has some spunk left in him. He can be fast but usually he prefers to be slow. Would he be an okay team penning horse? Atleast until I get more serious about team penning and become a better rider?
Do you need 3 people in order to show? My best friend is getting a horse and wants to do team penning and barrel racing. I told her I would help her and do team penning with her but my horse is too old for barrels. So my friend can do team penning with me but if we need 3 people we don't know how to get another person.
How do you get your horse used to calves? My dad works on a dairy farm that is up the road and is owned by my uncle so I know I can get a few calves from him to practice with but how do you introduce your horse to them for the first time? Also how do you properly train a horse for team penning?
Lastly, where can I find out about begginer shows near me? I have looked around on the internet and found nothing. Does 4H do team penning? (I've looked on their website and couldnt find it) If so, I can maybe join 4H?? I don't know, so that why I'm asking you guys! I think 4H enrollment already past though anyways.
I'm 13 and my friend is 12 in case there are age groups or something. I honestly have no clue on how to get into a team penning comepetition.
