Horse shows are darned expensive, and around where I live, few and far between!! I was snooping around the internet for some way to get more experience in the show ring and look what I found!!
They have a dressage show with entries closing this Sunday and there are hundreds of dollars in prize money and absolutely no entries!!
I entered a show when I first joined and won a bunch of money PLUS got commentary from an FEI judge.
For a $15 entry fee it's totally worth it!!
