First Horse Show and I need a little help...

My first horse show is coming up this weekend. My horse and I are ready. However, I just found out that only offer stalls and no out door paddocks. Well my horse has never been in a stall her whole life. What can I do to keep her calm if she spooks while in the stall and What exercises should I do when I take her out.

Most in general what should I know about stalling a horse, I have never put my horses in a stall.

Stalls are normal at shows. I think it is time your horse learns to get comfortable in them. If the show is not till this weekend you have time to find someone that has stalls and park her there for a day or two.

I also have to agree. :) The horse should get used to it in no time.
Maybe find a place to stall her for a little bit (like for pratice), so she'll get used to it?

Ride more, worry less.
