We have a very nice pony that our older grand daughters have ridden, but now outgrown. Sugar Bear is 20 and a been there done that pony. One of our Grands will be in town the weekend of a local schooling show. The 6 year old wants to try. She has ridden a few times and wants to try in lead line western classes.
I think I can muddle through the trail class and western pleasure class but What are the judges looking for in Showmanship, and Equitation classes? What should we expect?
The grand daughter will be here on the 16th, and the show is on the 25th. So we won't have a lot of time to work this out.
Thanks for your help. DR
