Nervous...

I have a show coming up next weekend, the first one in ages!
Its small and is run over one day. Im doing the led in classes, the ASH ridden hack, rider classes etc.

But I get so nervous and of course when im nervous the horse gets more nervous too. Everything i've worked on goes out the window!

Any tips to keep my nerves under control?

I always just pretend I'm riding at home. I still get nervous when Im showing at some bigger shows and I have been showing since I was 4!! I think the key to not being nervous is show experience, you just have to go in there and do it and next time it wont be so bad.

I totally agree with just more show experience, I hardly ever worry about my classes any more because I have done them a billion times. I do get a little nervous with showmanship but that's something new to me that I haven't done before. I am mainly worried about forgetting my pattern lol. In my ridden classes I know I wont forget what walk trot and canter all mean lol. Then jumping is easy for D and I it's just remembering which jumps to jump when.
