    What are your 2012 show plans?

    What are your 2012 show plans!?

    What will you be showing under? Is this your 1st year showing or have you been showing for awhile?
    What are your showing goals?
    Where will you be showing? How far do you plan on traveling to shows?

    I'm planning on showing H/J and EQ as well as dressage, this will be my first year back into showing after about 4 years or more really out of the whole showing life.

    My goals, to have a fun safe show season as this is oliver's first show season ever!

    I am in NW WA so I will be showing all around the snohomish county and into Auburn area as well :)


    We will not start our season till march or so :)
    So excited!

    Trained
    This thread makes me smile as it brings thoughts of spring (right now, we're having a snowstorm) & riding & showing! I show my horse locally & attend a few out of town shows as well. I do english & western, I have never competed in jumping, yet. My horse did go to a trainer to learn to jump & the trainer took him in a few jumping classes. So this year, my goal is try a low jumper class, my coach perked up when I mentioned that. Hopefully we can try that, looking forward to it.

    I am also starting back showing after several years out. I have shown hunter before, but this year I am thinking about trying out jumper. My goal is to not get last.

    This will be my fourth year doing strictly dressage, my nineth year competing. I'm planning on doing enough local competitions to qualify for Pony Club States, Equestrian Australia States and maybe even EA Young Riders. If I make it to Nationals, even better. I'm hoping to be competing Novice by the time I get to the Pony Club States and hopefully either Novice or Elementary by the time EA States comes around.

    I plan on doing both local, open, and some bigger shows with my barrel mare.

    I pray for clean patterns and no injuries.
    Everything else will just be a plus :)

    This year I will be showing Dusty and Rosie at the Oklahoma Foundation Quarter Horse Registry. But, I am going for the versatility saddle on both of them You have to have a speed event, show event, halter class, and a cow/ranch event.
    Dusty will be in:
    Speed: Sr. Youth Keyhole
    Show: Sr. Youth Western Pleasure
    Halter: Youth Geldings All Ages
    Ranch: Sr. Youth Handy Ranch

    Halter will be a bit hard for Dusty, seeming that there are A LOT of horses in that class, and he is only around 13-14 hands. I will probably enter him in the 2-3 Year Old Geldings Class so the judge sees him more and gets that he is younger than all the others in the Youth halter (he is 3).

    Rosie will be in more than likely a lot of classes. But her versatility classes are:
    Speed: Sr. Youth Poles
    Show: Youth Reining
    Halter: Youth Mares All Ages
    Ranch: Going to try Working Cow Horse

    Same issue with Rosie in halter, except she is 21. Oldest horse at the show. So, I will probably enter her in 11 and Older Mares, for the same reason as Dusty. Only time Rosie has ever placed well in halter is with the judges that look at her teeth.



    Then, with Sassy, I am going to try to get her good on the barrel pattern and take her to some rodeos. The Cowboy Churches of Oklahoma are having a rodeo series, and one church asked me to ride for their team:)
    If Sassy decides the pattern is not her thing, I'll have no problem taking her off it and maybe trying some sorting. She's only 5, might as well get her seeing lots of things!:)

    This year I will participate in my 4-H shows all the way up to state and possibly be going to Southern Regionals. I'll also do most of my local shows and maybe even some bigger ones if I have the time. Last year was my first year ever actually showing, it was mostly just speed events/trail riding before.

    But this year I plan to slow it down a bit and go away from the speed and focus on my gaited events. I'm going to be showing English for the first time this year too, and that needs more of my focus as well. We're just hoping for a good, and safe season!
