    I've done all types of english shows. Open shows, schooling hunters, schooling jumpers, dressage schooling, usea eventing non/recognized, and B rated hunters so far with Lena. I basically just sign up for whatever my barn is going to for the milage. Luckily my barn's owners' daughter is my biffle and shows at about my level, so sometimes just the two of us go out together and we leave the little childrens at home. XD Unfortunately she just got a new horse and the last few weeks with her last horse were a little rocky, so we haven't done much of anything. This spring is when I'm going to get really serious into the hunters and eventing, so I know for a fact that my showing will pick up again when it gets a little warmer.

    (We couldn't go to a hunter show last week because of the stupid 50mph wind gusts... ;[ and I have a feeling the snow in MD/PA/VA will start being a problem soon too...ugh.)

    It's meant to show here on Monday which is REALLY wierd for the area I live in. I'm kind of glad is doens't snow much here in the winter because that would make showing in the winter harder unless you have a covered arena lol.

    I wish there was one to put from the very lowest level all the way to the top. With my babies and project horses, I do the local schooling show, with the occasional breed show. However, I've had a couple of horses I have taken to the ABRA and AQHA world champ, with one year end high point top 10 placement in QH and numerous placements at the ABRA world champs. Unfortunately, I sold that horse and the other one is making very nice babies, so I'm back to the smaller shows right now.

    Oh, and I hate the wind! It is gusting to 45+mph right now and it's in the 70s. Perfect temp, but I am not getting on my current flighty horse in this type of wind. I think I would end up airborn, without ever taking him over a jump

    That sounds awesome, my mom desperatly wants me to be a dressage rider. I told her when I start doing 3-day again then I will. She hates me doing x-country, hubbyz gets nervous as well (we just don't tell dad)

    We do local game shows. They are WSCA shows. Also barrel jackpots. I'm also hoping my daughter will be able to do some local rodeos this year. We did Little Britches Rodeo last year and she placed in her events.

    Thats the truth about the cost of showing! Holy Cows! I looked at what I spent last year, and what I planned out this year.. I cringed! I wish these things were more affordable so that more people could attend!

    My goal is to make it to the finals this year.. lets see how it goes!

    Me too! Its my dream to go to APHA world! My plan is to save up my money and go next year. Not this year because we are moving to Texas in march. I am going to go and watch this year though.
