ooh yeah. Definitely. You can ride in snow, difficult as it seems, but the rain?? Not unless I want to be cleaning and drying tack for the next two days.

Wow, that seems like a lot of stuff, SonnyLove!! I can't do western, much as I wish I could

I've done 2 dressage shows already this year. But the busy show season kicks off this month! Hopefully no more snow to cancel/postpone shows (we should have done 4 shows by now...)

We'll run through October or November probably. My gelding will be going to dressage shows mainly. My yearling will be making her first outings starting in May for confirmation classes. If I can find an "aged mare class" around here I'll take my TB. If she does well when she's restarted undersaddle in the spring MAYBE she'll go to a local dressage show :)

I must say I am SUPER excited for this show season!!!
Like you said, here ours is months away as well, at least on the draft side of things. Our family friend got new drafts, percherons, and I get to show them along with mine and his haflingers. I get to show them in every thing and anything I can. Showmanship, Riding (english hopefully), Driving both singles and team!!! (i have a feeling i'll learn something like tandem or something lol) Obstacle, Halter (i'm super excited for this one because i'm hopfully showing all of the percherons and all of the haflingers that don't over lap in classes and of course my girl daisey), Log pull, Mane and Tail decorating, and grown driven obstacle!!. We'll start the season off at a local show and i'm hoping to do pretty well at it. I'm going to prepare daisey as much as I can as soon as this snow goes away. Then a haflinger show over the next weekend, and we're going to be going to Ohio State, Lawrence County, Canfield, Greensburgh, and KILE(states basicly)!! I'm sooooooo excited. I love driving and I can't wait to get in there and do everything I can with the drafts. Hmmm not to mention I get to go down at the end of the month and into april to start training : ] I actually am going to look forward to getting up at 5:30 in the morning to get horses ready : P : D

Now I am really jazzed. My friends and I drove up to Charleston to visit the used and new tack stores :) I got my son some lovely rust colored Harry Hall breeches new with tags for $40, garters they can share, a muted pin stripe show shirt for $9 used but with now stains, and a blue show shirt new $19 for my daughter.....oh and another fitted pad, girth, leathers and irons for the kids saddle! Whoot digity :) Now we are all outfitted and I don't have to worry about that part because his boots should come in today or tomorrow. I just need the rain to go away so we can practice.

Gordon Wright once told a student to take up swimming because he would never be a good rider, that rider was George Morris.
