Wanting to start doing shows, but have no idea where to start...
I have been wanting to do some shows with my 6 yo QH mare. But I have no idea where I would ever start! What kind of shows are good for show/competition virgins? lol. I was thinking western pleasure or some kind of a stock show? I ride western btw. I consider myself intermediate/advanced. But I mostly just lope my horses around my property for fun. :D My QH Luna is very, very fast, and doesn't really have any bad habits except wanting to go fast all the time XD

Hi Tatiana - afraid I know very little about showing or western riding but I just thought I'd mention you'll get more positive responses if you only make one thread about the topic :-)

Sorry I wasn't sure where to post it and idk how to delete a thread...

No problem! I think only mods can delete threads, just wanted to let you know before you got a backlash or anything :-) When it could fit in multiple sub-forums I generally just choose the one that seems the best fit or where the expertise will be hanging - so for your question I'd probably go to the "Western Pleasure" forum.

Welcome to the forum!

A small gymkhana or pony club ribbon day or a training day is the best place to start.

Local, low key, relaxed. I went to one today.
