Exclamation First show!!! Help!!!

I am doing my first show it will be on walk trot ( I ride english) , in ?half hunter hack? Or whatever it is called which I think is - medium reins, still hands, forward trot, and good position.

Pleasure - slowish trot, loose reins, STILL HANDS, good position

Equitation - tight reins, big trot, still hands, very good position

Is this all right? The one I am most unsure about is the first one, my show is tomorrow, so if you know please help!!!

Thanks,
Ponycrazy

Pleasure...it's all about the horse...nose out (the horses, LOL), reins loose, but not slack. On the west coast they sometimes ask you to drop your reins.

Eq...it's all about the rider, bay-bee! Sit up tall, heels down, quiet hands. Your horse should be on the bit, meaning no slack reins.
