Hence why he has been out to lots and lots of new venues with no competitions on, he has done lots of inhand shows and why i'm only going to a local unaffiliated dressage test. It is now time that he gets out and actualy does something ridden even if we never make it to the dressage arena I will concider it a sucess If i can get on him.
If he freaks out it is no biggy as the venue is regularly used to get babys out for thier first show and it is not going to be his main discipline
If he freaks anywhere it will be either as I get on him or in the warm up, he will be fine if we actualy make it into the arena. Shows are different here in the UK you can't turn up and just ride around the grounds you have to enter something. If it were summer I might take him out to a small local show and enter him in some inhand classes and then the ride him round, unfortunatly it is winter and none of that sort of show are on and if he freaked there (it is his main discipline) then it would affect his reputation
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
