But they just have a few different english pleasure classes. Would you just consider that a low level open show? Because there's another stable, which I was also considering lessons from (but there farther away) who says they have schooling shows, what's the difference between schooling and just a normal open show?

Unfortunately, I do not have that much show experience or knowledge of the bigger shows, so can't really answer your question. The schooling shows I went to called themselves a schooling show, and I know that there are circut shows which I would imagine are more of a "big deal".
I hope somebody else can answer your question, as it would be interesting to know.
