    Show help....eeeeek hehe

    Okay after talking to my boss at work, I got Labor Day off......sooooooo there is a horse show going on and alot of the people at the stables are bringing their horses there to show and I thought it would be awesome to bring Sonny and show him in a couple classes.

    But I don't know what class(s) to enter him in...not 100% sure if I should since I've had no time to practice at all...
    Here are the different shows.....The ones in bold I CANNOT do (meaning I wouldn't be able to enter due to my age, or Sonny's page) or ones that I don't want to enter

    1. Leadline- 8 yrs and under
    2.) Model western horse in hand- horses 2 yrs and younger
    3.) Model western gelding in hand
    4.) Model western mare in hand
    5.) Model western pony in hand
    6.) Fitting and showmanship-13 and under w/t
    7.) Fitting and showmanship- 14-17 w/t
    8.) Fitting and showmanship-Adults w/t
    9.) Western equitation-13 and under w/t
    10.) Western equitation- 14 and over w/t
    11.) western equitation- 9-17 yrs w/t/c
    12.) western equitation- adult w/t/c
    13.) Western Pleasure- 13 and under w/t
    14.) Western Pleasure- 14 and over w/t
    15.) Western Pleasure- 9-17 yrs w/t/c
    16.) Western Pleasure-Adult w/t/c
    17.) Obedience- all ages w/t
    18.) Obedience- 9-17 yrs w/t/c
    19.) Obedience- Adult w/t/c
    20.) Open western stakes- all ages
    21.) Open western road hack- all ages
    22.) Open western horsemanship- all ages
    23.) open pairs- all ages, enter with partner
    24.) walk/ trot pairs- all ages, enter with partner
    25.) Western pleasure futirity class- horses 5 years and younger
    26.) Owner to ride- Pleasure w/t/c
    27.) Bareback equitation- w/t/c
    28.) Bareback pleasure-w/t/c
    29.) Bareback obedience-w/t/c
    30.) sit a buck-w/t/c

    I can't do anything with a canter since Sonny's canter isn't's fasssssst.

    Any ideas?
    He knows neckreining fairly well and I have a western bit that I can use....along with split reins and a western bridle and a western saddle. I have show chaps and I'd just need a show shirt which my BO said she has.

    Hmmmm... I'm not sure if your exactly ready for this show...

    But there is no problem in entering a class or two and seeing what its all about !

    You say your horse canters much too fast.. I WOULD NOT enter the pleasure horse - as they are looking for exactly that ; pleasure to ride ;)

    Model western gelding in hand would be definitely a good place to start providing your horse Sonny leads well.

    Western Equitation would also be a good one to do, as long as you have a steady seat, and have control of your horse, you should do well!

    Unfortunately nearly all classes require cantering apart from lead... Now and then you might get lucky with a judge who doesn't want a canter...

    Otherwise, if he can't canter then I would just take him in the led event.

    Hope this helps!
