I dont think im gonna ever get to show my horse!!!!!!!!!

Im very mad and dissappointed cause I think my trainer doesnt want me to show my horse this spring. Her daughter and I were talking about it showing and she says " well my mom says were putting my mare and our other gelding in stalls this spring to get them ready for showing" and I said " what about Shaggy?" and she says "i don't know what were doing with shaggy"

her attiude when she said it was "like I don't think your showing"

I think its because they're ( her mom that's my trainer and her daughter) afriad i'll beat there stupid horses because they know shaggy is an amazing and better horse

and personly I know shaggy could be them because unlike them he listens and respects his rider!

Ouf... (so happy I haven't gone through any barn drama in my life yet!)

My 2 cents: (achem) Well your a payign customer so I would go over and tell her you want to show and if she says no... then ask why. If you're a good rider, then any excuse she would give would probably be absolutely ridiculous.
Because an only good reason to say no would be if you and your horse weren't ready or : we have so many riders we can't possibly fit you in because there is no room in the trailer.

Talk to the mother... Push push push. You want to show, she shouldn't stop you for such selfish (and immature) reason (if that is the reason of course). She should think of you as a prospect for promoting the quality of her barn and it's horse/riders.

Hope this helped... I can understand your frustration. :/

thanks Hidalgo13 I wish it was as simple as to many riders but its not im the only rider besides her daughter and its not because ertr not ready cause we can do a simple walk trot class no problem ya know but I just get this feeling she doesnt want me to show cause she's afraid of Shaggy beating her daughter and her mare ( whose suposed to have all this training but is completely crazy) and your right I need to talk to the mother but she's never comes up to barn (its on her property) when im there or anything. I've been trying to give her til spring to shape up but I don't think im going to make it!

Why give her the option? He's your horse, you pay to keep him at this barn, take the initiative and get him ready. If she is your trainer she should want you to show and do well to increase her chances of getting more clients. But even if she doesn't want to, offer to pay her for hauling and she has no choice. Why are they putting them in stalls to get them ready to show? Is it to make sure they're shed out? When is the first show? When I show for about a month before hand we try to make sure they don't get any bite marks, do a lot of grooming, etc... We don't stall them though, not until we give them their major bath before the show and that's only a day or two beforehand at the most.

Have you considered the possibility that it may just be her DAUGHTER that doesn't want you to show? Maybe SHE is the one that is afraid you'll beat her and since her mother isn't around that much she is trying to make you feel like her mother feels the same.

Showing
Well, first of all (not trying to offend) he may not be ready for the show from trainer's point of view. Since we don't know you, your horse, and your trainer it's hard to judge. However if you think he IS ready then just show. He's your horse and it's your decision on whether to show him or not.

I have my doubts about them not wanting you to show because you might "beat them". That's extremely immature. I agree with Jacksmama, it might just be the daughter thinking that. How old is she?

But... if your trainer does say no, I don't think there's much you can do about it. It's her property, her trailer, her truck. What she says goes (unless you're hauling your horse yourself. If that's the case, you can do whatever you want). I can't imagine why your coach of all people wouldn't want you to show. Why don't you ask her about it?

Foal
You don't really have to put a horse in a stall during the winter to get them ready to show in the spring? As long as they don't come out of the field looking like skeletons they're A okayyy to go play at shows. If you're paying to show and board and train, im sure you're trainer will be happy to take you to shows regardless of what her daughter says. You sound young, but I would first talk things over with your mom about your showing goals, and if you do want to stable your horse in a stall for preparation. And then go to your trainer. Im sure her daughter isn't intentionally being malicious by saying she doesn't want you to show because you'll beat her, but you may not be ready to show.

How old are you? I would have my parents talk to your trainer and see if you are worried about the relationship being severed or something. Something like this happened to me and my mom got really mad and talked to the people and they changed their minds. So that might be a good idea as well.

keeping them in s stall is to thin them down there all so fat including mine lol and you could be right but she's not smart enough to lie to me ( I know that's mean but its true lol) I know right I wiould think she would want me to show!

lol non taken and if I didnt think he was ready I wouldnt even consider it but I know he can do a simple walk/trot class and that's really all I need to start off with anyway (mainly cause I can't canter really well yet lol)
