    Horse Show Research Paper

    • 2 Pages

    Everyone who knows me, knows that I own horses and that I go to horse shows, but most of them do not know the whole story or how big horses are in my life. Like many little girls, at the age of nine I fell in love with horses. My mother had horses when she was younger and decided that she wanted to get them again. Until this point, the only contact I had with the equine species was the pony rides at the local fair. Since I had never been around horses, my mother contacted a family friend to give me riding lessons so that I would know how to be around them and not get hurt. It did not take long, I was hooked! Once I became good at riding, I started to go to local horse shows. I joined a local 4-H Horse club, starting going to 4-H events and within a year I graduated to going to 4-H Horse Shows, which lead me to qualifying for the Virginia 4-H State Horse Show in Lexington, VA. This was the first time I had been to a horse show of this size. There were over 500 horses in the same place with riders ages 10 to 19. These riders were competing in all disciplines – Western Pleasure, English, Jumping, Dressage, Trail, Reining and more. Experiencing this size show fueled my passion for becoming a “true”…

    My First Horse Show!! I could not hold my excitement in much longer. I knew I could not just start jumping up and down, so I continued washing my horse with a huge smile on my face.I could not stop thinking about how much fun my first horse show was going to be. After my mom and I finished washing my horse we went and cleaned out the horse trailer.

    ready to perform at Scioto County’s 4-H Western Horse Show on Wednesday during fair week. My 4-H group members were supportive and enjoyed me being their secretary. My mom and sisters were major characters in my story. My passion for riding grew deeply in the show ring that day. The first show I performed in was the Fun Show on Sunday which starts the fair week; it was terrifying because so many people participated in those classes. Adults and youth can participate in any of the classes as long…

    I am going to be talking about the time that I saw someone I didn’t like being picked on. Once I was at a horse show with everyone I rode horses with. I liked most everyone and I assume the opposite was true as well. There was, however, one boy whom I didn’t get along with very well. We had fought the year before about this show and the drama got to him. I don’t like dealing with drama very much so I decided to separate myself from him without being mean or rude. At this horse show, there was a…

    winner in the big shows you MUST have the foundations down. They are: Weight on the balls of your feet; toes up and in, heels down and out; bend in your knee; back up and straight, shoulders back and just over your hips; hands up and together; and finally eyes up and smile. These are the foundations of not just saddle seat but any riding (it’s mainly used in saddle seat though.) They not only make the rider look nice, but it’s more comfortable for the horse and allows better control of your…
