    First Show - Could do with some advice. (:

    Ok, so it's mine and Dougal's first show on 6th of June! We went to a small in-hand one last summer just after we got him, but this is our first show involving riding.

    We are doing quite a few classes as it's a fun, relaxed show and I thought I might as well make the most of it. This show is just to gain some experiance for the both of us and get him used to a show enviroment. He's been to Pony Club lots of times so is defintly getting used to a large amount of horses in a big field but i'm prepared for some high jinx as he can get a little excitable.

    Ridden Turnout - What should I expect in ridden turnout? What exactly do I have to do?

    In-hand [Highlands] - I did an in hand class last year but could do with a refresher in the basic proceedures!

    Ridden [Highlands] - Now, i've read up on ridden shows but would love someone to just go through the normal routine with me! I know I need to do w/t/c [Dougal still has trouble cantering on his left lead but as this show is completely for to experiance i'm not too bothered.] Also, I have to do an individual show part. What would be the best sort of thing to do for that? Any ideas?

    Best Riding Club Pony - I know this involved w/t/c and a small jump. Anything else included in this class?

    And finally, i'm doing the mini novice show jumping. The jumps are only very small but what exactly do I do once I go in the ring? What would the best way to memorise the course be? Ect.

    Basically, I would love some advice and tips and basic proceedure of each class if that's possible! I'm very new to competing and am very excited but a little nervous of getting it wrong.

    Sorry I cannot help you with some of those classes since I live in the US but you could get a lot of responses in the Showing section . However, the way I remember courses is by looking at the course and invision myself doing the course. I'll even point out my direction with my finger and then I give my course to someone and I read it to them over and over until I have it down .

    Agh, I posted this in the wrong bit! I thought I did when I couldn't find it after I posted it. Woops.
    Thanks, I have a rubbish memory so I'll try that.
