Hello, Western pleasure being the only class that I show with other riders. Otherwise I compete in horsemanship, reining and possibly at the end of the year,cutting. My nerves in reining especially are awful. I've been close to throwing up. My dad tries to keep me calm and I talk to a couple friends I have met but they are often just as nervous. I have forgotten patterns HOW DO YOU FORGET TO DO A CIRCLE! I DO! Champs really good when I'm nervous but he can't memorize a reining pattern for me. What do you do to help calm your show nerves?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
