Aha! Helensville.... Your a kiwi too
I'm guessing the A&P show up there would be rather on the large side, being Helensville, I know the wanganui one is still too big to take my boy to (panics at horses moving around)
I would be inclined to enter him into the SB class and just do flat for your first show.. Has he been to any shows before? If not, then be prepared as it probably will not go exactly to plan. The first show I took my boy out to was a complete and utter nightmare, and I had been riding an uptight mare for the past 5 years at various shows with not too many problems. But Mitch, oh boy. I took him in to a very low key show as he had not been off the track long, and he went nuts, like I'm talking worked himself into a sweat through my wick-away saddle blanket and all over my saddle dripping with sweat worked up.
That was the day we found out he was fearful of horses moving in different directions to him. *sigh*
Being a standy, was he a pacer, did he have a "race name" or anything? My boy was Fuji Extreme, so that he stayed :)
I do like the northern dreamcatcher though, I would also be inclined to call him a dark bay because of his brown nose.. I always thought black was black, like black everything no brown points. But who knows
I would probably wait till your next show to enter the x country or jumping, just because if either one of you gets show-day-nerves, you dont have so much stress when your just on the flat (my experience anyways) and the show day nerves are bound to happen on a youngster, depending on his previous experiences of course
