Do You Show?

Do you show? If so, what level?
If not, how come?
Just curious about how many people here show?
I show for fun at the 4H and local level, but I prefer to just trail ride and ride bareback.

I show mostly at a local level and I did 4-H for several years. I have shown at a couple of A rated mule shows for my trainer but I doubt that I'll make a habit of it. Traveling out of state is too expensive.

I show at local open and schooling shows. I show because it's fun and it exposes my horse to new things and new environments. I also show so that in case I ever have to sell my dear boy, I can add "show experience" to his resume and help make sure he gets a new loving owner and not a kill buyer as he is older.

When I was younger I competed through CFHJA (central Florida Hunter Jumper association), but now I just suck lol I have been out of riding regularly for quite a while and after some injuries in the past, I'm literally learning how to ride again from square 1. It's depressing.......maybe I will show again one day when I get my stuff together, but my life is different now and I can not afford it!

I like showing, mostly the gymkhana and fun show type deals. I would like to get into reining and horsemanship classes more, but none of my horses like them (horse doesn't like bit, another physically can't)

I don't currently show. Mostly because I'm a broke college student.
