i catch ride all the time...it's great since i can't afford to show all the time. essentially, people ask you to show their horses, and they'll cover your entry fees...basically everything. like a full paid trip to a nice show. to get one....my trainer knows ppl in the show world so she can get us them, sends different clients vids of my riding and she'll send it to other trainers and they'll show their clients...etc. you really just want to work on your riding and make yourself known in the equestrian community. cath riding gives great experience, you get to ride and show different horses and it's also great bc you save money w shows.
