Several months ago I was reading about the history of quarter horses and the local racing that earned them their name, and I noticed that AQHA has a youth racing division. It occurred to me that my gelding might really excel at it (he's very competitive and DANG- he can sprint).
I sort of put the thought aside, but it keeps coming back! I want to find out more about it and figure out if its reasonable for me to try it.
Has anyone had any experience with this? I'd love to know more.
I'm not looking win anything, I'd definitely participate recreationally at first, if that's even possible.
I think I'd be okay weight-wise as far as jockeying goes. I weigh 120 now and could probably get down to 110 without looking like I'm going to keel over.
