Horse show class help

Hey everyone, so I am entering my horses in a show and I am bringing my young horse. I only jumpers and have no idea what to compete my young one in. I want to do a few cross rails classes and a few eq classes. The show is Grand Oaks HSITP if you want to check out their prize list and help a girl out and comment which classes I should do. Thank you :))

How long have you been riding? What level are you training at? What does your coach feel is appropriate? How much training has the new horse had? 3 is quite young to be competing her IMO.

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.

I am an intermediate to advanced rider, I have been riding for 11 years, I am my own trainer, lol, she has had all basic ground training and has down crossrails. She is young, but i'm not jumping her anything above crossrails and she needs the experience.

Do you ride under a coach? That would be the right person to ask about classes you should enter.

How old is the young one? If under 5, I wouldn't be doing anything but ground poles no jumping, period. Take her but just keep her tied to your trailer. If over 5, one easy cross pole class.

Find a more knowledgeable equine vet. None I deal with would advise this.

Do what you want, but I recommend you do some research on this.
