Do you have any tips on how to get back into showing?
Try to find a local circuit to compete on that is at the level you want to show at. Whether it is rated or unrated doesn’t matter, you need to find a level to are comfortable at for the time being. The hopefully they will have a schedule with all of their shows that you can attend, and try to do as much as you are comfortable with. I would try to find a trainer that competes and trains on that circuit, so they know the divisions they offer and can help guide you to what you need to do. I would set goals with your trainer for each show season, so you have something to work towards. You need to have something to work towards that will motivate you all season. Also make sure your horse is in good condition to show, if they have been off for a little bit, you probably want to take a few months to build muscle and freshen up before you show. You want to also make sure your horse is comfortable with what you are showing in. They need to push you, while also not making it super easy on you. It is really important to have a good trainer to guide you through the stressful world of showing! Hope I could help!
