Some of you may remember me posting a thread about my riding in a fairly serious show for the first time. Well, it never ended up happening but I got birthday money this time around and my Dad officially approved of me showing next weekend .
My instructor has me marked down for the lesson horse I've ridden for the past month or so, Lucky. There's a picture of her in my avatar and here's one from further away:
The show is set like a real show but it's still intended to be for fun. You don't have to wear show clothes (but you're still expected to dress nicely).
The show starts at 9a.m. And here's what I'm doing:
Class 10: W/T Pleasure
Class 11: W/T Cavaletti
Class 12: W/T Equitation on the flat
13 or 14: Pole course Equitation
Class 15: Command Class
Does this look like a good schedule and what time should I arrive at the barn to get Lucky groomed in time? My cousin will be coming to help me out and be my groom.
Anyways I was just hoping for some tips. What should I bring? What should I keep in mind? Also, I know people use baby powder on white markings. Are you supposed to only use it on the feet or can you use it on the face too as long as you're careful?
