Am I wrong?

Lately I have been feeling like not wanting to continue showing.
I'm not going to lie Romeo and I are not great at gaming and stuff, but we have fun.
I have been showing him for 3 summers with the same people, these people are in my 4-h group, My horse has never misbehaved in the show grounds.
But I just feel like I don't belong there. No one ever talks to me, no congrats Dani, your horse had a beautiful run, nothing. I sit alone in the warm up area (Where everyone else is) and no one ever says hi or anything, even if I try to start a conversation, they just roll their eyes or leave...
I just am starting to hate it.

Am I wrong? Should I just stop showing?

When you stop getting pleasure out of a pursuit, it's time to quit.

I quit showing years ago, and have never regretted it. Trail riding, hunter paces, and (hopefully) foxhunting take up my time nowadays.

Is there another discipline in which you're interested? Why not try that instead?

I remember showing at fun shows years ago and when I think back no one ever talked to me either. Are they more friendly at 4H events? They are called fun shoew because they should be fun

Since it sounds like your biggest problem with showing is the people at the current venue you show at, why not see if you can find a different place to show?

Could you show somewhere else?
Maybe try a different discipline.
But if you are not having fun, then don't do it.

Everyone else hit the nail on the head.

Showing should be fun. If you're not enjoying it get out.

I guess I've always seen a lot of snarly people at gaming shows where the competition has gotten to their head. However I've found TONS of lovely people in the eventing world where everyone is more than willing to help me (the token newb) out.

Competitive Trail Riding is also tons of fun and has great people involved. I would either take a break from what you're doing and try some new activities with your horse or just see if you can find a gaming arena with people who DON'T have sticks up their rears.

I can look around, but these people are big showers and they go to all of the shows around here, so I think they will be everywhere I go since we are in a small town area.

I'm also thinking change of discipline. Have you ever considered eventing? I haven't met a stuck up person yet at an eventing show. Everybody is nice and helpful.

That does not mean there would not be OTHER people there that you might get to know and be friends with.
