I'm not going to speak ill of a beginner rider giving it a shot (that's pretty much where I'm at), but don't claim to have competition experience when you obviously don't!
Well, given the picture they showed of him... It was probably a summer camp when he was about 6. If he didn't have much natural talent and that was all he did, technically he competed, and he would look that lousy now!
I started riding in a summer camp where we rode for several hours multiple times a day, and a lot of those kids could barely trot without help by the end of it. I was one of the only kids who didn't have an instructor leading me, and one of the only kids who got to ride a horse instead of a pony, despite being about 3' tall.
My horse is a dressage diva so I don't have to be.
