So I ride a horse named Brewer, I lease him but he's basically mine cause I'm the only one who ever rides him and I ride him almost every day. He and I are working hard to get him into shape, but he is 23 and before I started with him 5 months ago (and 3 months before that with his owner) he was out to pasture for 10 years.
So there is a barn horse show on Friday, and I wanted to compete in it. I did a fake show with my mom with Brewer, where she called out different gaits and reverse and stop and so forth, and he did NOT do well. So I decided to ask to use a different horse for the show.
I wanted to do Low Hunters with a different horse. But Amy said since I signed up so late, all the horses are already accounted for. She suggested Brewer and I do Long Stirrup and Pleasure, and she said that she and my trainer both think that we would do very well. But I don't really know what they are. There are 3 classes of each, I assume 2 flats and a jump? And what are they judged on? What is like their reputation?
Sorry for the super long post I am just confused and wanna give you enough info to answer my questions.
