    First show! I'm excited!

    Ok after alot of years of riding I am finally going to a show and I am very excited. I am doing a crossrail class( normally would be higher but am taking my horse who is new to jumping) a equiatation walk, trot, canter and a beginnrer crossrail hunter. If you have any advice for these classes or shows in general that would be great thanks! Oh, and I forgot I am also taking a pleasure hunter walk, trot, canter class.

    HAVE FUN!!

    When you're having fun and not worrying you tend to be able to preform better - at least with me!

    If you get nervous, sing a little song (like Twinkle Twinkle Little Star or something like that), it will relax your abs and make you breathe - it's also great for keeping tempo!

    Smile!! Smile at the judges and spectators, show them that you're enjoying riding your horse!

    Be courteous; congratulate the class winner (if you don't win, that is!) and be a good sport; honestly I think judges like this.

    Look up over the fences! Don't look down!

    Braid your horse and shine your tack and boots - proper turnout counts!

    Hope this helped! Best of luck!!

    That's awesome; hey don't worry, it doesn't have to look perfect. Braiding isn't easy lol.

    Yeah, luckily this show is a based on beginners with little or no show experience so if I mess up they won't care. I acually am not sure if they even make you braid since it is so informal and supposed to be an easy show. I guess they will tell us. Thanks for all your help!
