I plan to. We actually showed this past summer a tad bit. We started in April and took him to a basic schooling show and just did some x-rails and he did well. We then took him all the way up to the Colorado Horse Park. The first time I just schooled him around during a show. On our second trip we showed in the 2'3 hunters. He did well for his first time, they had some odd looking jumps that he'd never seen before. He was really good though. He could do hunters or jumpers, but this next summer I want to start him on jumpers. We were only doing hunters to keep the jumps tiny for his first couple trips out. We'll likely start showing in June and enter some puddle jumpers classes 2'6-2'9. Then eventually we'll move up to the Schooling Jumpers 2'9-3'3.. and so on and so forth.
