Would like to learn more about showing!
I would love, LOVE, LOOOOOVE to learn more and go forward with showing my mare. I really don't know anyone who shows, and the barn I was at no longer has any showing members. I don't even know where to begin! I don't know what kind of ground-shows there are, or riding. I have been riding about 6 years, but never had anything registered that I could really work, as most of my work has been put into bringing the horses back to health and starting them under saddle, and never really took interest in it. Beings we are moving from Kansas to very rural Montana in a couple weeks, I would like to get into some kind of little shows to meet people, and I'm not eligible for 4H. Where can I start? I want to use my little APHA mare, she's 4, and there are pics on my profile. She's not in the best muscular condition, and not broke to ride yet, however, would be really easy to get done once we get somewhere steady. She's good in the round pen, with and without the longe line. Any ideas? I have been riding western, but haven't had the tools to ride english.
