Showing in hand

I have a coming 3 year old Welsh x Hanovarian sport pony and would like to get her out to a few local shows this season. She isn't trained under saddle yet because she is still growing, but I want to get her used to being at shows, etc. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of show experience.

Can anyone direct me towards any good resources (books, videos, websites, etc) to help me prepare to show her in hand? I'm thinking of classes in halter, sport horse in hand, and showmanship.

I am also looking for a trainer in our area to work with, but haven't found one yet.

Some good classes I don't know about SH in hand in thinking its like trail at halter? But know about halter and showmanship. Halter you can move feet and touch your horse Showmanship you can not. A lot of practice standing still...when I get going at it I will practice my mare when there is a lot going on... ie lots of riders or busy action around... and we stand set up and stand and stand move and set up get the idea. The more going on at home can better prepare you for the kids running around at the show or people announcing classes ect. Helps keep her focus on me and she learns if she stands quietly squared up that its "easy" if not our job gets longer and harder as I will add lots of showmanship to make her work.

Showmanship book I found on Amazon:
Hope That Helps
