2011 Show Dates and Plans.

I've been hunting around for the 2011 show dates (in english disciplines) for my province, and have managed to pretty good listing from the Pony Club Webpage:

Of course, there's tons, but also tons I couldn't enter. So I'm looking for more info on there ones...hopefully we'll be pretty decently trained (with some professional coaching to boot) for one of these:

Possible Shows:

...and this is interesting...
The Canadian Western Horse Association, which seems like an awesome place to get started. it sounds both economical as well as really friendly for newbies like me! They're also at PineRidge Equine Park, which would be a really short trailer haul for MoonSox...hmmm...and they have hunter, jumper and trail classes, which would be perfect!

...emails sent! Manitoba Horse Trials is going to see about updating their webpage and send me a 2011 show schedule. And hopefully I can get involved with this CWHA and use that as my jumping off point!

This is exciting! Except, now I'm trying to try so many different classes, that I'm going to need so much equipment that I likely won't be able to even compete! I think I need to focus on just one (or two that use the same gear) classes!

So, I'm thinking, I'll ask for:
- An english show coat ($60)
- An english dress shirt ($30)
- A competition saddle pad ($30)
- Boot socks ($14)
- Show bridle ($99)

...oh the expense! :P Probably won't even be able to show this year because of how expensive it is. Can't believe even in the entry shows you need the whole jacket-pant-shirt-boot combo. Guess that's why they call it the 'sport of kings' : P

Guess we should train and see what we're capable of before we run out and go all crazy on this stuff...who knows, we might suck. : P
