    First I am going to say that I do not know you your horse or the people at the shows. You say local rodeo?? Not sure if you are actually talking a RODEO or just a local show with several events.

    First if it is a local show with several events and you are there to have fun they enter other events and skip the speed events. This will help your horse to be well rounded and you will not be competing against these people. This is what I do. When a local show offers reining I do not enter the reining class unless I have a green reining who I am schooling and I enter the class with the understanding I am JUST Schooling and not to judge the horse. Just would not be fair any other way in most cases.

    If there is more then one level of speed events like there is around here even at the local speed shows as they are NBHA move up in class.


    Other then that just suck it up or do not go to the small shows just the larger ones where you have more competition.

    Also the way YOU act when you win is just as important as how you act when you loose. Might want to think about that too.

    Well, this is just me, but if people were being downright rude to me like that I'd ignore them and really give them something to be jealous about and I'd keep kicking all of their butts, gracefully, of course.

    Friends will always come and go, don't sweat it, especially since you're not living in WI anymore! Be glad you have the opportunity to live in a different place and make new, better friends.

    Also, you could bring your own family or friends to the show! I know a lot of "horsie" and "non horise" people who would love to take a Saturday off and go to a show.

    I always show local and people dispise me for it. I do very very well and often people wont talk to me after because I beat them. They only talk to me if they place over me. Some people are just shallow and selfish.

    OH OK now I get it!! You don't have a 20k barrel horse but EVERY other event you do. That just make soo much sense!! When you talk on here it doesnt make much sense first you say and talk about your expensive horse and now apparently you don't own them???

    Sometimes when you have left a local level series to show at a higher level, there will be jealousy (sp?) I don't know how old you are, but teenagers can often times be the worse, although adults can sometimes not be far behind. You just do the best you can, and question WHY are you going to this show in the first place. If it's to see friends - don't go. If it's to work on you or your horse, do what you need to do to accomplish your goals.

    For example - I grew up showing at the local county fair and local series, but my parents provided me with the opportunity to keep advancing, and I eventually moved on to QH shows. I have a retired mare that hasn't been shown in 5+ years, and is actually a broodmare now. I went with my parents to the county fair (they were on their rope horses) and showed her. She was out of condition, and hadn't had a saddle on her for over a year. Literally pulled out of the pasture, bathed, and clipped. People about had a fit that I was showing her, because it was "unfair" and "cheating." I had gone to have fun with my parents, on the most "fair" horse I had, and those people almost ruined my day. But I was there to have fun with my family, to ride my old horse that I grew up on, so I did. It made the day harder, and I don't know if I'll go back. But if that's the only show I can go to with my family, then I will
