has he shown with his previous owners? if he has then he'll know what's to be expected of him.
Do you feel confident riding him and does he respond well to your aids in different situations (what's he like when you're around other horses or in a busy area?
If you have the correct turnout then there is no reason why you can't start your showing partnership there
it will be a great place to observe others who are experienced competitors, ask questions and learn a lot!
Good luck and let us know how you get on!
