I'm worried about forgetting something, once I forgot a saddle pad, at a CT, so for the dressage phase I had to borrow a friends colorful CC saddlepad, and for CC I used my friends nice white dressage pad. I normally wear my show pants under pj pants, but for some reason didn't ONE show, and forgot my pants at home, so we had to turn around, go home, grab my pants, and head back to the show. I have a tendency to be so worried about forgetting something, that I end up forgetting it after checking everything else except that one thing. Nervous that I forgot to clean something, or didn't clean it good enough. And of course I'm do excited, that I can't sleep the night before. I am not so nervous once I enter the arena, its just all the stuff BEFORE entering that gets to me. Once I'm in the arena I'm in my element, and quite happy. When I used to do dressage shows and jumping shows, I would worry that I'd forget my test, or my course, unless I was able to watch a couple people go before me. I hated being the first one in the arena. I'm doing my first show with my Arabian, and am nervous at how she's going to do, and nervous that I'm going to be nervous because its all new to her, and its been a few years for me, and that its going to cause her to be more nervous than she might have been otherwise. I am excited though. I'm not planning on winning anything, I just want to go expose her, and start her career with the easy stuff, which takes a lot of the stress off because I don't really care how we do as long as she listens and is happy.
