I am currently competing intro at events and placing in the top two. At jumper shows I do 2'7 and I place in the top 5's. I'm starting off my eventing season beginner novice in May. I hope to school alot during the summer and hopefully compete novice in the fall. My pony is going strong but he is going to be 19 years old and I have only been riding for 2 1/2 years. Would going novice push us too far?
