Searching for shows...
I'm trying to find show bills online, and am having very little luck. Does anyone have a website you look to find them? I've only ever shown at the local fairgrounds, and I'm looking to branch out this year.

It really depends on the type of shows you're doing too. In California, the breed show organizations have their show bills on-line maybe 30% of the time. If it's a major circuit, it'll usually be posted somewhere. Otherwise, I almost always have to e-mail show management.

What type of shows will you be doing?

My horse is only in his second REAL year of showing [up until last year he'd only gone to a few every summer and those were really low key], so I'm still looking to stay at smaller hunter/jumper shows. He's a thoroughbred, but I've been showing against QHs the last two years and doing fairly well.

So, in short I suppose, I'm looking for hunter/jumper type open shows. I'm assuming I'll have to find numbers and call or go to local tack shops to get show bills because I'm finding absolutely nothing online.

Yeah, that's your best bet. Or check Craigslist. People use that around here all the time. I would also check the websites of the barns/venues where shows are held. USEF also lists shows and contact info.

Seems like lately show managers attach PDFs to e-mails...if you know who to ask. :) HAVE FUN!!!!!!
