Have you ridden in an A-rated show before?

I've watched a couple shows, my friends at the barn who had horses competed(I have a horse now tho) but haven't competed in one but would like to eventually.

A-rated breed shows were the only ones I attended when I was actively showing.

I had an Arabian, and it was at the height of their popularity and snob appeal. I certainly wasn't going to waste my show horse on anything less than an A-rated breed show.

My trainers the same way! Haha, she won't sign me up for the lower shows anymore now that I have my horse, so all A from here.

I ride in A and AA shows with ponies. I've catch ridden a few before, and my pony that I own does great in them! Before I was doing opens we had a rider show him in the Greens and he had clean sweeps almost every time out! I also will do some B's from time to time, I think the competion is equally as stiff though and I've noticed alot of usual B ponies will ocasionally go to A shows and do fine. Anyways, all I was trying to say is that YES I do compete in them.
