What age...

Did you start showing at? I am 16 and haven't really shown ever, only 2 local ones and some fun ones we did at the barn. I want to so bad, but we just don't have the money right now. I would like to when I'm older and can afford to buy a second horse.

I think somewhere around 10, I am trying to remember exactly but I know we started going to pony club meets and open shows with my trainer at about the same time and that was when I was 10.

I've never been to a show/been in a show, ever, and I'm 19, 20 in September. I love to be in one sometime but I doubt I'll ever get the chance since there just aren't shows around here for some reason but I like to dream! Haha

I was 14. I had made the switch from Dressage to H/J at 13, never did any dressage shows.

I actually did the odd occasional show since I was about 5, but I've only started actually getting right into showing when I was 13. Age is only in your head.

I started with lead line (not very heavy only like 4 or 6 shows) then I showed a lot from 8-13 then went SLOW from 14-16 and now heavily since I was 17 (I am 21 now). Made a 'switch' from Hunters to Breed show but my heart lies with Hunters. However I am surrounded by breed shows so hehe D has to play all rounder horsey
