could we be successful?

So , lately I've really been considering taking my mare to the next local show. It's in November so there is plenty of time for me to decide on all the little things. However, I've been told that my mare probably wouldn't do well because she's a chestnut. She is registered paint and quarter horse. Her sire was absalootlyazippo and her dam was treena vandys delight. She is solid, so I would probably enter her in quarter horse classes.
What are your personal opinions on her?
Thanks in advance :)

Take her! She's a fox!! She's not 'just a chestnut', she's a gorgeous shimmering copper! And that ARSE! Totally show-worthy!

I will start off doing halter classes, but in Australia colour has a fair bit to do with it, only because judges are so subjective around my area and tend to chose the "prettiest" horse.

She is a stunning specimen on the equine world. So yes, take her! Even if you don't place or win, you will have fun.

I think she's beautiful. Id take her in a heartbeat.

Exactly. Who cares if you don't win? It's just local. It's just for fun.

Besides, you've got a pretty horse. Go for it!

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Well of course I think she's beautiful too, but I never know if I'm just bias.
Winning doesn't matter to me, but that's not to say I wouldn't like to prove a few people wrong who have doubted her in the past.
Just another thing, would I black around her eyes and muzzle? She gets quite dark in the summer and I'm not sure it would be necessary?
