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?
I would ask here if she ever came to that barn

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.
there not in stall all winter im talking about this spring. Horse shows here don't start til may

No you don't. I am 20 so, I would still talk to the trainer and have my parents too especially if my parents were paying for stuff. If I were paying for it, it would be my responsibility. So we are close to the same age. I would be really ticked off actually if I found out I wasn't showing and I really wanted to. There is no reason why you couldn't be in an adult novice class or whatever level YOU feel comfortable in.

Talk to your trainer to get her opinion. Tell her you really want to try and feel confident to go with the easy classes. BTW, this way you also show her a respect for her opinion as a trainer (which never hurts). I'm older than you still I ask my trainer if she thinks we can compete and where/how/what classes.

Some people are funny like that though. In my case it was cheer leading *cringe* I hated it. But the big competition the coach didn't want me to compete, she had her favorites and anyone that wasn't "perfect" didn't compete. Well my mom got mad, as it was JV, which is to learn and you don't have to be the best. So I think it works in this situation too. You want to compete to learn and get better and be a better rider and you really want to show, so why can't you? I don't see the problem.
