I'm probably going to enter in a few small shows next year. Flash's old owner wants me to enter him in some of the local Sporthorse shows since they recently added a Thoroughbred division. I'll probably just enter him in the walk/trot stuff for fun. I honestly think he'd make a an awesome hack horse - he totally has the right personality for it and I really like those shows.
Paying for them is going to suck though lol. The last time I showed I still had my parents paying for my riding..
I've still got my jackets and helmets and stuff for showing from when I was a young teen. It will probably still all fit me...shame I hate showing!
Yeah I am going to break Samson in...but even the best training and work can't make up for ability, or lack there of. He's not pretty enough, or has nice enough movement, for show or dressage, which is fine. I was hoping on doing some endurance, polox, horse ball etc but he's just had a growth spurt and I think he is going to be too big :(
So if he can't jump (he's a standie so I am not expecting him to) he won't be good for much except trails :(
He will be a great trail horse for someone though.
