See if you can find any local Pony Clubs or join 4-H. It's a great way to start off showing for kids.

Maybe you could find a cheapish trainer to help you out or go check out a local barn and ask them.

Yea, if you can find an active 4-H club that shows I would recommend it highly. That's how I started. It's a lot of fun to show with other people and they will most likely know what to do even if you don't in some situations.

Oh, in that case I'd look outside your town for the nearest active club. I don't even belong to a club within the same county as I live.

Just make sure they are active. There are a lot of clubs that just exist and don't really do anything. You would have a hard time getting them to show with you.

I agree, try to find a club nearby (4H or pony club). Otherwise, or in addition to that, getting them into lessons with someone well reccomended would be good.

Do you know much about horses? You could join up with someone knowledgable about horses and start your own 4H club. Just make sure you have resources available to you.
