Hi there! At the end of September 2010, I bought my first horse. She's a lovely sorrel Warmblood/Paint with a big blaze and four white socks (very flashy). She's 14 years old (same age as me!) and has a huge amount of jumping and showing experience. I, on the other hand, do not. I ride her 6 days a week, and we're a good team, so I decided that I would like to take a spin in the competition world this year. Problem is, the barn I ride at doesn't provide coaching at shows, so I'm a bit nervous about going by myself. I'm going to show in very novice youth equitation, poles and crosspoles in the youth hunter division, and 2'6 jumpers.
So, basically, what do I need and what do I need to do? Any showing tips would be greatly appreciated!
