What style do you ride? Sometimes that can make a difference.

A horse, appropriate tack for the discipline you're showing in, preferably a trainer (or some idea of what you're doing), money and a way to get to the shows.

Technically all you need is entry fees, proper tack & attire, a horse and transporation to the show. In order to be competitive and not feel like a hick from the sticks, you should have an instructor to help you prepare for the classes you have entered.

Yay! I'm going to be a hick from the sticks! Lol. However, I have consolation that I won't be the only one. Lol
