The last show you had was about 80 % western and AQHA. There are many members here that do not have AQHA horses and to seperate one particular breed/type was a turn off to me.
There are a lot that ride English. This includes pleasure/hunter/jumper/dressage and some driving. Looking at the last show you had it looked to me like you had only a few entries per class because you made so many different classes that were essentually the same.
Maybe you might consider a show along the lines were forum members HERE can all chose to participate. There are people here on this forum that could be judges and some are experienced in various disciplines. A site I belong to has an annual show where the members enter as participants and each class is judge by 2 or 3 judges from the forum. Each judge must rate each picture ( by % like 84%) with critique comments on that picture. The scores are then averaged to come to a final % As long as the judge does not enter the class they are judging they can enter any other class.
This can serve many advantages in that no one wins becase of popularity and the critique can be useful ( funny in some instances if the class is the worst jump or best fall off).
In this format I would consider entering or judging something.
