    I have a point no one has seemed to cover yet.

    Try to stay ON the horse. It doesn't count if she does the test without you, lol

    The trick to a good dressage score, it lots and lots and lots of flat work at home :)

    Relax, you'll be just fine. Breathe, smile and enjoy yourself.

    LOL yes staying on is a great tip! Although I'm not so nervous about that for, CROSS COUNTRY on the other hand (and stadium for that matter)...another story! Sandie likes to do a slight pause just before she jumps some jumps in xc, which results in this (LOL):

    As long as you don't touch the ground your good! You'll be fine! Your jumps will be like ground poles
