Nervous About Upcoming Show. Advice?

So basically my last eventing show didn't go to well. We got in 9th for dressage because I nearly ran into the fence, then disqualified for stadium because my horse refused once then I fell off after, then for cross country Ihad to slap my horse to go over to jumps. So now I have early show nerves for a eventing show coming up in a few weeks. I want to go clear or double clear, and place. But I am nervous since my last show disaster. I was wondering if anyone has any tips on my nervous-ness and what you do to calm before a show? Thanks so much. I really appreciate the help!

2 things come to mind. Number 1- school at home / off property more to get the same experience as a show but not as much money or pressure.

2 if that's not the case try your best to brush it off, you can only go up from here.

Best way to stop nerves is go in there knowing you can win and you are 100% prepared for the show. Having to smack your horse with the whip over the xc jumps sounds like you should go out and do schooling over xc to get him going better. Practice is the key to any successful show, you need to put it a lot of hours to get results.

If this was just a bad show and you are ready to be there then try your best to brush it off. Falling, going off course, having hard rides, jumping out of the dressage ring happens to everyone! Your not alone- trust me! When you go to the next show think of the great rides you've had leading up to it and tell yourself you deserve to be there and your able to win. Winning isn't everything but knowing you can helps a lot
