How old were you when you started riding?
How old were you when you started showing?
How old are you now? (If you dont mind me asking)
What kind of riding/shows do you compete in?
I don't show anymore (at least not at the moment), but I started out showing my QH in open and 4-H shows in halter, showmanship, and western pleasure. Then when we bought our Paints I moved into APHA shows showing the same things, plus hunter under saddle and equitation classes. After about 3 years of that I got tired of the slow pace and decided to try barrels. So my parents bought me a Paint barrel horse and he basically taught me everything I know about barrel racing. Sadly, we had to sell him back in 2009, and the rest of our horses last year when we moved here to WA from FL. My sister and I found a barn that lets us ride their trail horses in exchange for cleaning their barn, so at least we're still able to ride. And hopefully one day in the future we'll have our own horses and be able to show again. [:
