If this is your first time doing WP, then I will assume you're entering a novice or "green" class. My advice will be tailored to that division. #1 - it's a pleasure class, so it should look like you're enjoying your ride and your horse should be a pleasure to ride. #2 - don't constantly look down at your horse's head, look to where you are going & don't pick at the horse with your reins. #3 - find a spot on the rail and ride deep into the corners, that way the judge can really see your horse. If you need to pass, do so safely and don't cut anyone off when going back to the rail. #4 - Have fun, when you can truly say you enjoyed your ride in a pleasure class, BEFORE the results are announced, you've nailed it.
