    Help need tips on show jumping!

    Hi I have somehow been roped into doing interschools showjumping for my school but I don't really do much jumping. I mainly do dressage and showing and havnt jumped a course since early april and that was M&M working hunter only around 70's and all rustic fences. This will be a course of 80's (i no it may not seem very big to most but I havnt jumped a course that high for about 5 years) I will be riding a brilliant pony (not my own because all of ours are either too small or complete physcopaths when they see a pole let alone a fence) but wont get to even sit on her untill the middle of this week and the show is on sunday. So any tips to help me get a clear round would be greatly appreciated. Will put up pics of me jumping if wanted. Thanks so much

    Coming from an IEA background where we didn't know what horse we were riding and half the time had never seen the horse until just before show time my biggest advice would be to know your course inside and out as early as possible. It may seem silly, but at least for me the anticipation and worry that I may mess up my course is my biggest downfall. Judging from what you said you're already a solid rider. Just remain calm and optimistic and you'll with no doubt do your best !
