How are shows arranged? Confused..
Hi everyone. Ok so I hate to say this, but I have been around horses and reading about them for about 8- almost 9 years and I never understood how shows were classified. Esp. Recently, when I look at horses for sale, I always see that some with records have shown in this or that but it never has any affect on me and how it affects the horse at all! For example, there was a SUPER nice horse that I would have killed to buy for a great price, just was a little too strong, and he jumped up to level 6. I actually googled it that time and knew that it went up to 4'9. My question is how do shows for jumpers work (since if I ever get a horse, I'll be competing in jumpers.. just not a dressage/hunter person AT ALL and western is just for fun for me)? I always read childrens, pre-childrens, and just a whole bunch of confusing stuff.. help?? :) OH, and how do you know what you should be showing in?
