english pleasure show - what can I expect?

I really want to show my mare Jubilee this summer. I've never shown before, but I know of English pleasure shows in my area and I've heard the judges aren't too hard. A little info ... Jubilee is an 18 yo TB and she's well trained in dressage and jumping and has been in lots of shows before I bought her.

I just want it to be a learning experience but fun. Has anyone shown English pleasure before? What should I expect?

I would go and watch a class at the specific show you plan on attending. There are different types of EP classes.

I'm assuming you would be showing your horse in the Hunter manner:



But I've also shown in EP classes that are Saddle Seat:



So I would just make sure you know exactly what EP class you're going into.

Yes, it is hunter style. It involves walk, trot, canter and hand gallop, all on command. As well as counter-canter, halt and change of direction.

I've never had to counter-canter in an EP class.

Thank you horsegirl, it does! I am excited. I hope it all works out. I don't know for sure yet if I'm going in it, but hopefully.

Entitled - Hmm... maybe there are different levels? I'm not sure if its actually called English Pleasure, but its something along those lines. Maybe "Hunter Undersaddle," not sure...
