So I am looking to enter my new gelding in some schooling shows in the early spring. There is one that I am looking at in March, that has a set date but the prize list has not been posted. So in light of that, I have been relying on the past two year show bills to get an idea of what tests we should enter.
We currently school many of the maneuvers and concepts of the Training Level Test 3, but I plan on entering him in Training Level Test 1 since this will be his first show. However, I noticed that this test is divided among three different categories: Novice Horse, Novice Rider, and Open in the previous prize lists.
I understand Open, but I cannot find anything that really explains what constitutes as a novice horse or rider. I can definitely email the show committee when they post this year’s prize list, but I would rather not if it’s a stupid, obvious question :o.
Thanks in advance.
