No, seriously that IS the question.
I have decided to enter Octoberfest CT at Hoosier Horse Park on 15-16 in October(obviously!). I am completely torn whether to enter at Starter or BN. Really the only difference will be 4" in jump height that really would not be a problem. It would be stiffer competition for us and we most likey will not place(which really isn't a concern for me). The dressage test is no more complicated. It is the difference of BN test A at starter(which we did in April and scored 41 straight out of winter) or BN test B at BN I don't know. I haven't done this very long. When you make a move up you don't really start out winning on your first move up anyways, right? It is about the experience in a schooling show anyways. We did starter in April and it was fun and not a huge challange but good coming out of winter. I cannot imagine starter being a challange at all. But we will be at a new place and he has pretty much only shown at CAF. So maybe that will add a challange, though for a horse how has raced in over a hundred races in different countries I cannot imagine it being a huge deal to him. Hmmmm your thoughts?
Off the topic of the CT though is that it is a 2 day show and they have OTTB classes which I would love to enter with Steady!! And I have already purchased a XC schooling armband for HHP so we will get to school while down there!!! I am starting to get excited!! Yay!
