  1. Horse Shows
    Hello everyone! I need some ideas for my mare's show name. I will be showing her in dressage and I need to get her a show name for her membership. She is a bay draft cross and her barn name is Bella. She has no markings except for a star on her face.
  2. Barrel Racing
    Howdy Everyone, I'm the show announcer for Midland Barrels up in Fonda, New York. So far this season we have done a Glow in the Dark Race, A Wine Run, and a Pick up 'n Hustle. We are looking for other fun run ideas to do at our next show. The Wine Run was done at our July Show and it was pretty...
  3. Horse Pictures
    I am no professional by far, but I think I got some okay photos for not having a fancy lens on my DSLR! This was my first time taking photos at a show (and my first time taking photos of horses in general). You can see the whole set of my "best" photos at the bottom of one of my latest blog...
  4. Horse Talk
    I have wondered about this forever. Is it just like a self proclaimed thing or do you need like an actual degree or education or something? I mean I'm sure it varies by which organization/style/event you're judging, but aside from that I have no clue. Anyone got any idea?
  5. Horse Shows
    I know that A Circuit riders often have expensive horses that can get close to the 6 figures, train frequently with prestigious trainers, and spend a lot of time (and time = money) at the barn. Do they ever make enough money to cover the costs? Can they make enough money to be actually 'making'...
  6. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Does it need to be dry cleaned or can I throw it in the washer with normal detergent? I have a show coming up and I really need to clean it! Thank you very much!
  7. Horse Riding Critique
    Hello everyone :-) If you wouldn't mind, could you critique this photo of myself and my previous mount? It was taken during a Hack division at a past show although I cannot remember which class. Critique equitation, horse and turnout! Thank you! (Click photo to enlarge)
  8. Horse Shows
    I'm really confused on which of these fees I am required to pay and how much each class is? Can you help me understand what i need to pay? I will be traveling with my trainer and sharing a spot in her trailer. Here are the fees and the entry form...
  9. Horse Shows
    My first horse show is in 3 weeks, im super exited but also a bit nervous! Does anybody have any tips or tricks to help me do better?:-)
  10. Horse Grooming
    My POA has problems growing a mane. It's like 2 inches long until like 1/5 of the way up his neck, then it's normal length (I'd say a good 8") but with some short hairs that still stick up. With upcoming shows, I want him to look good and put together. I'm aware that the common western horse...
  11. Horse Training
    I have had my horse in training for 2 years and he has done very well for me in the show arena, but I wanted a few opinions about showing my horse on my own. Basically, I would like to keep my horse at the trainers full time, but when it comes time to show I would like to show completely on my...
  12. Horse Shows
    I teach horseback riding lessons and we show a few times a year at the local shows, saddleclubs, 4h etc and I am very proud of my kids! I do not yell out to them when they are showing and don't embarrass or make them cry either during schooling or showing, like I see a lot of other trainers...
  13. Horse Talk
    In a few weeks I'm going to my first overnight horse show :-) we're going to be camping out in a tent, and dinner and lunch will be bought at concessions. I was just wondering if anyone had any tips to make it go smoothly, or any things that might be overlooked when making a list of things to...
  14. Horse Shows
    So, I'm going to my first show in about a month. I was wondering if I could get info about what to bring for me & my horse (it's a local schooling show), anything that I should do to prepare my horse in advance (aside from getting used to trailers, crowds, etc.), and any confidence tips. Thanks...
  15. Horse Shows
    The group of girls that I ride with all like to play pranks on each other when we go to overnight shows. We're going to a week long show in Perry, GA next month. I was wondering if anyone had any good pranks we can play while were there. Fairly inexpensive, wont make anyone too upset, and wont...

  17. Horse Shows
    This Saturday is my first show of the season! I am soo exited! I think we will do better than last year which was a complete disaster. (I had never been in a show before and my mom didn't realize that there was a pattern for showmanship! went into the ring and made my own pattern!) oh well! it...
  18. Horse Show Clothing
    Hi all- I'm doing jumpers for the first time this weekend. I've been showing hunters and equitation for a while, but jumpers is somewhat new to me. Anyway, my question is, what kind of shirt is typically worn for jumpers? The show I'm going to is a schooling show, so technically I can wear...
  19. Horse Riding Critique
    Here are the videos: I'm just looking for some basic critique...anything I need to fix :) After looking at these videos I noticed I tend to hunch my shoulders a bit, especially towards the end of the first course. Anything else you notice? Also, sorry the videos are a little outdated...
  20. Horse Shows
    I noticed a thread from quite a while back that started with someone asking about shows in Alberta. Not many were mentioned, and this one wasn't, so I thought I'd post. This is a great show in Alberta. I've copied and pasted the general information from the Wild Rose Show's facebook page...
