I bet it feels good. I left my previous horse behind for a year and a half when I was finishing school and I remember how good it felt when I was able to get back.

Welcome home! 8)

Have been able to haul him anywhere or does he mainly stay at home? I'd definately take him to as many new environments as possible -trail rides, other barns, horse shows, rodeos, etc. That way when he gets to World it'll just be one more new place. Probably will still be looking around more then the more seasoned horses, but it should help!

Taking your horse everywhere outside of his normal boundaries always does good. It should get him used to going to new places and new environments which should hopefully result in a calmer horse when actually competing.

I'm going to start hauling him soon to state parks and maybe schooling shows... I can't decide about those. In my area, our 4H is a bunch of kids who can't ride on 16hh horses and when they GALLOP around the arena in Huntseat my little guy is a mess... especially when they cut him off and bump him into the rail! I'm all for hauling, but I not to a show if he's only going to have a bad experience. At the Paint shows, their only crime is that they might go too slow.
All the advice sounds great! I'm real excited to go... if I do, I'm definitely going to document the experience so people like me can learn how to enter the CRAZY world of high-end Paint showing... !
