Do you show? (:

I've never showed before (I've only been riding a little over 2 years), but I might in the future. If I do, I think it'd be in Equitation. :]

Do you show?
If you do show, what do you show in and for how long have you showed?

I did one show last year which was my first and I plan on doing one show per month this summer hoping I can find transportation. I hope to show alot more next summer when I have my own truck and trailer. It's way too hard finding transport!

I mainly do gaming, 3 of the 4 shows I have planned this summer are gaming shows. The other one and the first one I did are just local shows with english/western mixed together. We showed english pleasure, equitation, trail and barrel racing.

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

Cool
I'm always scared that the second I walk into the ring I'll completely forget how to ride. xDD
And do you think 16+ is too old to start showing? S:

I kind of zone out when I'm riding in front of alot of people but I'm starting to finally hear people when they talk to me LOL.

I definately don't think that is too old to start showing! Besides I was 16 when I started showing last year :p

I love showing, we only do a few shows a year because they're so expensive! I show dressage ( I used to do hunters)
For me it took a while (and I still get worked up) to relax in the ring and ride normally. I have showed since I was... 9 or ten I think. But I started showing dressage a few years ago. 16 is definatly not to old to start! I know 40yr olds who are just starting! :)

Haha, okay, thanks

I don't know *anything* about showing, so I have a lot to learn. xD
And to buy. D:

I show my miniatures..the hardest thing about it is looking relaxed and natural in the arena.

My horse hasn't got the conformation to show unfortunately so no :(
I've showed before though, and it's good fun :)

I Have shown quite a bit sadly not so much this year I haven't had enough time. When I do show I compete in quite a few different things Dressage, jumpers, Hunter, Hack (generally hunter under saddle and english pleasure), I've also done reining, horsemanship, trail, western horsemanship, and then halter(with and Arabian and a Quarter horse), and showmanship.

It is really fun and a good experience for you and your horse.:]

Oh and Halter and Showmanship. :]
