Smile Beginner Novice or Green-as-Grass?

I want to to Beginner Novice in my second eventing show but it would be my pony's second eventing show too so I don't know if it will be too much to soon. My first eventing show was a couple days ago AND SHE WAS AWESOME! My pony only refused 1 fence but then jumped it from a stand-still. I did the 2' 3" division. It was a schooling show, and we schooled everything the day before. The Beginner Novice at the show I want to go to is 2' 6"-2' 9". The highest I've ever jumped is 2' 6", but the show is at the end of September.

What do you think?

What do you think?
BN tops out at 2'6", so we're talking a 3" difference. I would think as long as you're schooling 2'6" consistently and your pony does not appear to be overfaced, go for it. You've got 3 months to figure it out which is always nice. Would you have the opportunity to school the BN XC course?

Yes I would be able to school the Cross-Country course first. Which is very good to me. And I found out that it tops out at 2' 6". Thanks for the post!
