Depends on the class. In Western Pleasure, yes conformation is a factor, and in halter conformation is basically the only factor.

But most likely it's just the fact that the lookers always have owners who know the most about showing. It's sort-of difficult to explain, but one thing leads to another.

Don't expect to be a winner immediately. I didn't place at my first show. Most people don't. Just don't get discouraged.

Depends on the circumstances and the requirements at the show, but there's no law against showing out of state.

Make sure that you have a current coggins test. Most states require them these days before you can cross state lines.
Good luck. Don't worry, I did my first show last year and din not place either. My horse had a great time and I had a blast.

Pretty horses catch eyes. Horses that are pretty and can move catch even more eyes. A good rider who is in sync with their horse who just so happens to be pretty and conformationally correct will win the class.
