I have a chance to be on the quadrille team at my dressage barn, I saw one of the practices a few weeks ago(they were riding before my lesson) and I asked my instructor about it and told her I was interested and I guess she thinks I'm ready because at the show meeting yesterday she gave me the info from and said it was given to riders who expressed interest and were capable of being on the team, so YAY lol. It's a good way for me to get more riding time in at a lower cost and it looks like fun.
I'm just wondering if anyone here is on a quadrille team and could offer me some insight and tips. My biggest challenge will be not getting nervous riding closely with other horses. I'll be riding a lesson horse, but my horse is a bit evil when it comes to other horses(once she ran backwards to try to chase another horse, mind you I repeatedly told the owner not to ride so close and she said "I don't care if she kicks her" ) So because of how my mare is, I tend to get a little tense when riding close to another horse.
So, good opportunity?
