Hello Philippa,

I have a few 7 year olds but my trainer rides them. It's very difficult for us to get our younger horses out to shows because we are always at bigger competitions that don't have young horse classes. Our 7 year olds are currently going to local shows doing anything from 1.20 - 1.35m classes depending on each horse. When we get the chance we take them to any show that has a young horse division.
