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.

Welcome to the forum LiveToJump! Yea, I would agree, staying on the horse is a good goal to have!

LOL yes staying on is a great tip! Although I'm not so nervous about that for dressage....now, 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
