How do I start showing and competing?
Ok well i'm 14 and live in England and have been riding for 4 years and I know that I am good enough to compete but I just need to get a bit better, I can do things like cantering, trotting, and walking and jumping, and simple shapes like 20m circle, demi volt, figure of 8, etc. I've just been told i need to practice being firmer when doing transistions and being on horses that like bolting towards the gate.
The problem is the riding school i go to now isn't a Pony Club centre, and im pretty sure the only competitions they have are like inter-school ones.
I don't have my own horse, but i know i really want to compete and get to a high standard, but i don't know what to do.
What should i do or should i just stick to riding for fun now?
find a barn that offeres showing for horses you take lessons on? or become a working student in exchange for showing horses
any other ideas?
Showing can be a ton of fun! Go for it! Sounds like you have to find a place and a trainer to take you to shows.
true but I don't know if i should leave my current riding school :(
Could you ask your current trainer if she could take you to some shows?
Ok since my riding school leases horses for shows for cheap ill ask her
