You jumped a course of 4 jumps, some of which she tried to run out? If you can't confidently navigate around a nice course at home I don't think she's ready to show over fences yet. All those problems you have an home are going to be magnified a million times at a show, even with Quietex. The most important thing for a green show horse is to go somewhere new and have it be a positive experience for her. Making her jump some scary jumps in a scary environment when she can't do it at home most likely isn't going to be a positive experience. I'm all for taking green horses to new places though. Can you take her and just do a few flat classes just to get her in the ring?

Like I did on the other forum that was worded COMPLETELY wrong.

Its like the first few jumps she will do it to. Which it takes like one more try and she will go over them like nothing. She's pretty ready to go over courses. She's more unconfident if we change the jump from a cross rail to a 2'6 verticle all of a sudden lol but it takes little to get her confident if you do it the right way. She's a point and shoot horse. I really should have worded that better sorry

But yeah we decided the show that I was going to bring her to is WAY to big for her first off site show, and IF we bring her on teh 28th it will be to a simple versitlity class.

Also SpiritHorse. I deffinatly agree 110% But its more of a rule sadly in some places idk about this place. Most likely Ill just drop the idea and prepare her correctly rather then rush her but like said if we go it will be to a versalitily which is easy :). Or it was last year LOL!

There is no rush for you or Chance to show. You both are young, you have plenty of time! You both need the proper foundation before entering the show ring. Why do you think I haven't shown Arie yet? ;) I'm sticking to passing Level 4 before I think about showing, that way I KNOW my foundation is strong enough for performance training.
