So this coming weekend, I'm taking my OTTB gelding to our first HT! Yes, this is a first time for both of us. He's just recently come off the track, and I've had him for almost 3 months. His dressage is getting better, but there is only so much that can be accomplished it 3 months. Anyway, he's a great little jumper - loves XC and SJ. This weekend is just a local unrecognized HT and we're going Intro. So there is no stress or worrying, just simple and straightforward.
Since it is my first HT as well, I would LOVE to have any sort of "tips" or tricks of the trade. Anything is helpful! Anything from preps to do this week, stuff at the event, or for what to do the night after is welcome.
Thanks so much!
