Smile 1st Dressage Show!

Hi!! Soon I will be going to my very first dressage show ( I do Hunter stuff usually). I have been practicing for a while. Any advice?

Have fun, relax! I always say 'Thank you' to the judge as I walk by after I finish the pattern. If it's a schooling show, the judge may or may not give you some advice after ( the judge at my first show did ) so if she starts to talk to you, don't assume she's talking to the person ( scribe) beside her and keep walking ( like I did lol). remember to smile! remember to breath! remember to have fun! best of luck!

Thanks for everyone's helpful tips! I love the horse i will be riding and I am very excited about it! Its kind of like my very first horse show all over again, because i have been told a lot about what to expect, but It will be a much different than a hunter/jumper show.
