    Would that mean having to keep a blanket on him all the time, if I clipped him?

    Well then, why the heck do you even ask?!

    Gah, so frustrating to have someone come on and ask about breaking into the level that you show at, receive advice, and then complete disregard it out of sheer laziness. Why do I waste my time replying to your posts anymore?

    Get off your duff and get a trainer if you want to be a real showman - especially at the breed show level.

    I don't have an AQHA trainer, nor am I going to get with one. There's none around here. I do have someone to give me lessons, and I'm picking that up again very soon.
    I will definitely do more showing and get more experience before I try AQHA. I want to be more prepared. But I know I'm never going to go to a high level with it, so I'm not going to go all out. I don't care if I don't place; I just want to try this with my horse and say we did it. Of course, I want to look nice and perform well, but I'm not as into it as you are; never will be. I ask these questions because I would like some advice, but other than 'get a trainer' I haven't gotten much. And I already told you that's not possible.
    I guess you're right, why do I even bother?
    And I'm not just talking about you spurstop, others too.

    Believe it or not, there are certain standards to showing, even if it isn't the highest levels.You are just wasting your time and money if you won't do something as basic as proper turnout.

    You are wasting the judges' and other competitors' time as well, not to mention being disrespectful.

    If you aren't willing to put in the work or give yourself the best chance of success, you are just setting yourself up to have a bad experience. I wouldn't encourage anyone to do that.

    Proper turnout is something everyone can do. Do your homework and do the work if you want to compete, in anything. You'll enjoy it more.

    I think you could go for it, if it's something you want to do.
    Trying to get back on topic here :)

    How were the previous posts off topic? We were answering questions asked by the OP. I think that is the very definition of on topic.

    Oh, her original post she didn't mention anything about clipping, but I now see where a little later she did.
