I just got a new horse about 3 weeks ago. She is an OTTB (off the track for 10ish months) and 4 years old. She is definatley NOT show ready yet and I don't expect her to be. I want to eventually do eventing with her and I was wondering what kind of show would be best to start with.
Should I just jump into eventing and do an event at intro with her, or start at a little hunter/jumper show?
My trainer and I think she will be ready to show by the end of September at the latest. There are local events on October 21 and November 11 (The Maryland Horse Trials at Loch Moy Farm). Before that, there is a hunter show on October 7 (Saddleview Bts and Bridles).
I don't really think that doing an event would be best to start off with because there is so much going on, but I've never been to a hunter show before, so I don't know what it's like. She has to start somewhere :)
My horses are in Union Bridge Maryland, so if you know of any good places to try a laid back schooling show that would be great
