Advice: steps for a sucessful show season with a horse that has never been to a show.
Hi guys so, I have a few questions. My friend and I have horses (14 and 3), one who I know has been to Equine affaire but that's it (in hand), and the other has not been showed in two years. So how should I best prepare for a horse's first show? I want it to be the best experience for the horse, are there any ideas of what I could do before the shows begins at home to prepare him for showing, like tying, practice loading and unloading etc.? Should the first show just bringing him to the show and getting him used to the commotion that happens at shows? I want this to be a enjoyable experience for him and I, and my own personal thoughts is take it in steps not all at once. Thanks for your advice!
