Question Wanting to start doing shows, but have no idea where to start...

I have been wanting to do some shows with my 6 yo QH mare. But I have no idea where I would ever start! What kind of shows are good for show/competition virgins? lol. I was thinking western pleasure or some kind of a stock show? I ride western btw. I consider myself intermediate/advanced. But I mostly just lope my horses around my property for fun. My QH Luna is very, very fast, and doesn't really have any bad habits except wanting to go fast all the time XD

Hi Tatiana - afraid I know very little about showing or western riding but I just thought I'd mention you'll get more positive responses if you only make one thread about the topic

No problem! I think only mods can delete threads, just wanted to let you know before you got a backlash or anything When it could fit in multiple sub-forums I generally just choose the one that seems the best fit or where the expertise will be hanging - so for your question I'd probably go to the "Western Pleasure" forum.

Welcome to the forum!

A small gymkhana or pony club ribbon day or a training day is the best place to start.

Local, low key, relaxed. I went to one today.
