Her instructor specializes in paints, but she hasn't shown them in a long time. She trains them for a combo of WP, reining and trail. I believe there is one APHA breeder that I know shows her horses around here but she's hard to track down. We will start practice at her arena in October. Her 4-H leader has AQHA, and a gal that I work with shows AQHA, but she's a 4-H leader also and there is just 5 weeks before fair, then one month to state fair so they're really busy right now with their current members. I don't doubt that I will have someone to tell me what to do in October, I'm just impatient and want to know now
. A lot of the "ranches" around here are nothing special, or just breed and don't do anything with them, or they breed them for gaming
which means they don't completely train them or show them, they just let them go fast.
