To Show or Not to Show?

The Heartland Welsh Club's show is coming up next month, and as much as I'd love to take Shae, I'm not sure if it's a good idea. I have to seriously weigh whether I want to take him or not, because finding a way to get him to Rochester is going to be extremely difficult. Here's how I see it:

Pros:
- Shae gets experience being away from home in a show environment.
- Shae gets experience being in the show ring.
- I get to hang out with the Heartland Welsh people.
- Shae gains WPCSA points.
- He'd be one more pony toward the 65 it takes for the show to become double gold.

Cons:
- He can't show in that many classes.
- I'd consider him solid in W/T right now, not canter.
- He's really young.
- Getting him there is going to be so hard.
- Dollars.

What do you think?
