Upon discussing it with my instructor today, I will be competing in it. :3 I'm extremely excited yet have a few butterflies and I still have roughly a month (until Oct. 20th). XD But I figured it'd definitely land some experience that I need(:

Thanks for your input!

I would compete. Whenever I go just to watch a show I always end up wanting to ride! Unless you feel like your not ready to show I would go ahead and get started:)

Good for you!!!!!
The first show is so exciting. A 5th place ribbon in a halter class at the county fair set me on a path of years entering the show ring. I wouldn't trade the experiences for anything!

Thank you for your input, eeo11horse!

Dustbunny-I figured if I don't place, it's not the end of the world. I just know I was once offered an opportunity to ride a horse (for free) at a Western Event show (Pleasure, Barrels, etc) and I declined it due to not having lessons, which okay-it makes sense why it was more 'intimidating' then, but they were still offering to teach me how to do it and to this day I wish I would've gone after it. And now I have a couple of phenomenal instructors, a barn full of laid back and caring people, as well as an amazing family and group of friends who are going to be there supporting me regardless of the outcome. The positives definitely outweigh the "negatives" (if there are even any negatives). :P

Thank you for the comment though!
