California Age Requirements for Showing a Stallion

I was unclear on what the age requirements are(if any)

distances are like men. never grab the first one you see; it's never the best one, more will come along.

I don't know wether it's the same in California as here in Australia, but at most public equine events/gatherings, you have to be 18 years to be able to handle/show/ride or whatever a colt or stallion. I have seen some events where you can be 17 years, but the majority rule that 18 years is the go. Of course, even at 18 some people cannot control/work with a stallion. Or rather, should not. Age doesn't mean much sometimes, but I suppose there has to be some standing to reduce risk or injury to handler/rider/stallion/other people and other horses. I would think that there would be some sort of of age requirements/resrtictions in California also...

Perhaps you should contact Californian Equestrian Society's and see what they say?

I'm not positive, but I believe there isn't a state-wide requirement and it depends on the rules of whoever is hosting the show. I show on the Arabian circuit and minors are allowed to show stallions, but I know many other show circuits don't allow it.

In Ohio it depends on the horse show, like, at Quarter horse congress I could show a stallion as a minor, but at my local shows you can't. Some shows won't even allow stallions. I would look at the show bill or contact the show office of the shows you want to do. That would be your best bet.
