Hey there, havnt been able to post much about my new boy Oliver and I as I have just been so busy with him!
Things are going so well that my trainer and I have decided to take him outto a few dressage schooling shows this winter. First show is November 19th. I plan on doing Training 1 and 2 with him as that feels right where we are right now and with another month and half of work he will REALLY be there or even a little further but his young brain requires us to take it slow as he has little to no confidance in himself esp in new places and mass horsesand people overwhelm him to the max so we have been geting him used to being around lots of horses in the arena and lots of other stuff.
My questionhere is what are the judges REALLY looking for in the training level tests. I know some, relaxation on horse and rider, forwardness and balance.
Anyone give me any helpful tips or any advice? I havnt shown since I was in 4h and was 13... I now am very close to being 20 and would love some suggestions.
