For a child so young, don't expect to see much growth in her riding ability for a few years. It's going to be more fun than educational until she is stronger and with better control over her body. That being said, she can certainly be in shows, but do remember that at the end of the day, best case scenario, she wins a ribbon. She can even turn out to be very good and excel and win (you'll find a few very young riders that are champions), but that is rare. Just keep your goals realistic about it all and you'll do great.
