Try to qualify for Young RIders if you're young enough .Win at the bigger rated shows. Think about the smaller grand prix. Then the bigger ones. Qualify for some nations cup teams, World Cup qualifiers. Etc etc.
I don't know where you are in your riding but I would not buy a baby. It takes so long and so much money to get a horse to the top, and there's no telling if he'll even have what it takes. If you're in the process of learning I'd get something experienced.
