Show Time!

Hey everyone!

I have a one appy horse she is a mare and is 28 years-old. She is the sweetest horse. Her name is Katy. She has been in shows before I got her and it's my first time being alone with no-one in the arena with me when i'm doing barrels. I'm very scared but I dont really like saying that to anyone specially my friends. My friends want me to to it and I want to! But im affraid I will mess it up or i'll go to slow. But Sue said I can only trot this year since it kinda is my 1st time! I think I worry to much, but I cant help it. Please somebody HELP!

Just take a deep breath and relax. So what if its ur first time and you may not be the fastest. Its all about experiencing it and having fun out there! Just try to do you're best and remember what you're priority is. To do it you're self! This is a big step and you should believe in you're self. If you put ur mind to it then you'll be fine. Just remember to take nice tight turns and when you feel relaxed you can go faster.
Biggest thing is don't stress. You've done it before so just pretend that person is there and do the same way. Remember to breath out there and have a smile on ur face. U'll do great I know it!
