Yes, I show. I do it because it gives me a chance to see where my riding is at when under pressure. Even though I only show at schooling shows, fall fairs, or a B level type show, it is still enough to get experience in. Plus, when my barn puts on schooling shows, some of the kids/teens at my barn compete, so it is nice to compete against those with a lot more showing experience. When I win the lottery or find a rich husband, I would love to show at the Trillium level in Adult Modified Hunters, or as an Amateur Adult on the A circuit, if my abilities allow me too.
My barn shows primarily hunters on the Trillium circuit, with two students in the jumpers. Both coaches show in the jumpers, either at Palgrave, or various other shows, such as Fox Runs jumper series, or up to the Royal Canadian Riding Academy for the series they put on as well.
