    Thanks lostdragonflywings, this is going to sound silly but how do you know if its a "schooling show"? The person im going to get lessons from works out of barn that hosts shows every year (we know the owner of the barn which is how we inquired the instructor). 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.

    Yeah im very curious, since its kind of confusing lol. Most the shows I know about are just called open shows, the first one to say there show was a schooling show was this other lesson/boarding facility.

    Same!!!


    I've only shown once.. and it wasn't even my show. I went in with a little girl so she wasn't nervous. I pulled 5th out of a class of I think 12? Not sure. She got 6th :)

    But I plan on showing my horse in a few years.

    Everybody says rock with the horse, for some reason I always got lunged forward. My 20yr.old arabian was trying to catch up with my moms pony on trail and she was going right threw my hands and basically took off in a fast canter. The horn jabbed me in the stomach and I almost threw up, so im kind of afraid if I ride english there wont be a horn to keep me from just tipping off the horse lmao. Ugghhh my family would love to youtube that embarrassment.

    I had the same fear, so I rode in an Aussie for a long while until my seat was great enough to survive in a dressage saddle.

    You'll be fine :)

    Aww that kind of sucks, which is why I would want to lease or own my own horse so I can show it and gain experience.
