    Just got a crazy idea.

    I think it would be fun to show my horse!
    She is AQHA registered, and I think I'd do best in some kind of Western show.

    Problem is, I'm 23. I've been riding for about 2-3 years. I purchased my first horse about 3 weeks ago. Showing may very well be something fun to try.

    Since I'm an older novice, and I just want to show for fun, what are your recommendations for getting into this?? :)
    It may not be for me, but any and all information is welcome. ;)

    I'm 23 and I just went to my first show with my weanling ( also his first show).... Do it! You are never too old to follow your dreams! We took home three ribbons, a third place, fourth place, and a sixth place but it was fun and we learned a lot.

    There are people of all ages at these shows younger kids, people out age, and older! Just be confident and friendly and no one will second guess you!

    Is there any local barns in your area that do local shows in the event your interested in? It may help to have a trainer that has shown and can show you the ropes. Your never to old to start, Im 26 and still learning how to do Reining I might go to my first show next spring/summer or wait for the following year. Just make sure you know its for fun and experience!!

    Yeah I am 27 and started showing this year. Our local "fun and frolic" show last weekend had a "beginner adult novice walk/trot" which was only for people riding less than two years. I competed in five classes total, but it's nice to compete in one for newby riders with a level playing field! Just find some fun shows and have fun!!

    Look around for some fun shows or schooling shows. I know a lot of older people who start there, as those shows are less intense and nobody's really looking at age.. they're just having fun and getting experience.
