This Sunday I am taking Cin to our first "play show," it's just a really relaxed charity show. No, there are no Dressage classes LOL. My goal is to work on our bond and trust issues and I thought this would be a great way to do it. I have experience with all of the classes, he has experience with NONE of them. But again, it's just for fun. Here is the showbill...which things would you choose? Oh, and because it's a fun show there is no restriction that if you do walk/trot you can only do walk/trot...completely open. Now remember, I have experience with almost everything on the bill (I don't know what the heck stick horse is) but Cinny has only done Dressage and only mediocre training level dressage. However he was bred for reining and speed events and always has a cannon up his butt to run full out.
These are the ones I was thinking of
Bareback Ride a Buck
The W/t pleasure 19+ and Green horse using my bareback stuff
Maybe English pleasure although he does not move like the AQHA and APHA pleasure horses, he moves like a dressage horse.
Barrel Trot and/or barrel 19+ with NO EXPECTATIONS just playing
Of course we will sport all protective gear including his boots, etc and I am not "pushing" in the speed things, just letting him have fun in a way that he never gets to.
What are your guy's opinions?
