It's All About Family and Friends
Tis the season of Love…the stallions are in their breeding season, florists are in the midst of their busiest holiday, kids are making special treats and messages for their classmates and Cupid is sharpening his arrows. But most importantly families and friends are finally starting to get some much needed time together. Love is in the air!
I started showing on the AQHA circuit six years ago. My career began with a three-year old in the hunter under saddle and then progressed to the equitation classes a few years later. My current show horse, Jack (“Willy Gonna Be Good”) is a three-year-old, which I plan to do the all-around with! I am really excited to start showing the western events, as I have never actually shown in the western classes before.
Multiple World Champion Trainer Valerie Kearns shares tips to improving your Showmanship score.
One of the best things about Showmanship at Halter is that any level of horse and exhibitor can compete and be competitive. It also creates a bond between you and your horse that carries over to every class you do. Showmanship is your chance to connect with the judges and let your personality come out.
