showing locally in the hunters you may do well. it's hard to see. does he get clean changes? that will knock you down, more than you can imagine (if he doesn't)! he has to get perfect distances in each. Because he doesn't have papers and you aren't sure his breed.. you have to be aware of what classes you enter and what shows you go to. They may be more involved in conformation classes etc. I would avoid those. Have you ever shown hunters and equ before ?
