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.

Yep, have done a little bit of just about everything in the past. Currently I'm into the Jumper ring; my green gelding and I just did our first show together last weekend and did the 0.7 and 0.8m classes. My goal for the end of this year is being competitive in the 0.9m ring, maybe doing a 1.0m class or two, and my overall goal for Ronan is 1.0-1.10m, depending on what he can do.

So far I've only shown 3 times, but plan on doing more of it this year. It's a great way to get experience in and learn to ride well under stressful conditions.

I'm mainly just going to be doing schooling shows and a few small, local shows.

I have been showing in cutting for the past two years...I do it more for the fun of it than for the competition. For one, cutting is an extremely EXPENSIVE sport. I can't afford to hit the big shows, so I stick to club shows in my area. I have more fun that way anyways, because I tend to get really nervous before a show, and getting stressed out takes a lot of the fun out of riding in the first place! It's just such an adrenaline rush, I'm going to do it as long as I can! I grew up trail riding and still enjoy doing that whenever I can as well. I like adding a little variety - so am also hitting a couple clinics this year as well. Taking my cutting horse to a competitive trail clinic this month - THAT should be fun! :)
