    Um, you really shouldn't be taking a horse that young into a show yet. Wait until they're about 4. Their mind isn't mature enough to handle a show atmosphere.

    Have you broken your horse yet and what type of showing are you planning to do?

    IF he is broke, at least to halter and lead, then you could enter him in a halter class or showmanship at halter. That wouldn't be a problem with his age.

    Then again, if he is broke and de-sensitized to all kinds of things, you could even enter him in fun shows/playdays. Those are little shows that are huge competition things. We are having one in a couple of weeks where I live and it is just for fun and the experience of getting our horses around other horses and noises, etc.

    There are plenty of 2 yr olds out there competing in all kinds of events!!!!! The older the better though, as it gives them a little more time to mature and get settled.

    Just check around your area, feed stores, tack shops, etc. there should be flyers put up there, that are announcing fun shows/playdays.

    I live in uk so I don't no if the classes in the US are different but if he's 2 you know you can go in youngstock we call it inhand if you call it halter I dunno. Obviously coloured classes aswell I would look in your newspaper or on the internet to find out where abouts in your area shows are held and what classes will be on
