I show but had to take all of the 2010 season off, and most of the 2011 season due to family issues. Then I moved to a new state a near ago so my 2012 season was a little rough with the transition and I only did smaller shows. I'm looking forward to getting back to the A-Shows with my boy Dallas this coming season.

I show AQHA at the state level, but also planning on going to some bigger shows this year. I show in western pleasure and working on adding showmanship, horsemanship, and trail.

I don't like showing though I like going to watch my friends unless it becomes too snooty.
I take new horses to shows for the expeience but that's about it.
I think showing is the only sport where the participant pays to be the entertainment.

I show, right now they're just local unrated shows.

I show breed and show Irish Draughts, Irish Draught Sport Horses, and Swedish Warmbloods in USDF DSHB and Breed Suitability, USEA FEH and Hunter Breeding In-Hand classes.

My working students compete in dressage, eventing, hunter trials, participate in Fox Hunting, and occasionally 4-H or Pony Club trials.

I started out doing 4-H and small schooling shows, but now I event (competing BN, schooling N/T), as well as show hunters (around the 2'3"-2'6" mark) and jumpers (2'9"-3'). I still show 4-H, but to be honest, it's primarily so I have something else to put on college applications. I don't particularly enjoy it.

This year will be my 8th and final year of 4-H doing western, halter, showmanship, contesting, and fun events. This year I plan on showing my miniature colt in some open shows and hopefully driving in at least one show.

The reason I started his thread was because I have recently gotten bored with 4h shows. I am interested in competitive trail and other trail riding and mounted shooting. But I do love gymkhanas, I'm just not a huge fan of reining and western pleasure.

I show National rated jumper and horse trials. I haven't been in the show ring as heavy the last few years due to life getting in the way and then last year injuries sidelined me for the season.

I am taking my mare to her first horse trial in either May or June hopefully going pre-training if we can get enough cross country schools in. If not then we will do entry and hopefully end off the year pretraining. I am also taking her to a few derbys and jumper shows as well this year if everything goes as planned.

I have show horses, but I'm not much of a shower. I might do some this year, we'll see.
I much prefer the production of show horses.
