So I haven't been in the show ring in like four years and I'm super excited about this horse show I am going to this weekend. The horse I am showing is an Appaloosa Gelding, 14hh named Rusty. You can see him in my picture on my signature. He has never been to a show in his life! He has been hauled places to go on trail rides and he's been horse camping. But no one has any clue about how he will do. I am nervous about that but I know I am capable of getting him through the day.
We are showing in walk/jog western ranch horse, walk/trot hunter over ground poles, 18" hunter hack and walk/trot English pleasure. Its only a schooling show but there tends to be a big turnout of people. Also my horse kicks, so red ribbon is a must. But I'm still worried about someone getting to close and him kicking someone.
So this was a random and pointless post but it feels good to talk about my concerns so I guess it wasn't totally pointless.
