Would I be able to use my all purpose in a show??

I am starting showing really soon and all i have is a synthetic all purpose saddle. Would i be able to use it? I am doing hack class and rider and all that kind of stuff, but not a hunter or turnout class. im only doing ag shows and then hoping to get up to higher levels. i know i eithee need a show or dressage saddle, idealy a show, but at the moment all i have is my AP. would i be marked down at all???

I always use my AP in local shows, I personally don't think theres anything wrong with it.
But as you go higher it would probably be best to get a saddle that is designed for the show

I doubt it. At low-level and local shows it's not going to matter as much, but as you get into higher level shows you'll want to get a saddle designed for your discipline of riding so other riders don't have the advantage of a saddle over you.
