Next month is our very first drssage show... I'm super excited but I'm also kind of nervous. It will be novice class as it is our first one
Love Story works very nicely from behind, and she is very balanced and willing. She circles nicely and behaves very well at shows. She has a nice headset but sometimes lifts her head. I don't know how dressage is judged and marked, so I have a few question:
1. How are you judged?
2. In a novice class, do they take away points if you're horse lifts it's head every now and then?
3. What must I wear?
4. We are going to braid manes, but is braiding tails also required?
5. I have a General Purpose saddle, is that acceptable?
Any other advice and/or tips would be most welcome
