Ok random question, How do you guys get over show nerves.
I get so nervous before going into the ring, flat classes no big deal, hunter classes no big deal but, when I get in to a EQ ring or Jumper ring my brain goes to mush.
I'm in the middle of moving to a new barn that my trainer is now the ast. Trainer at and they show the a's which is awesome because the head trainer saw me ride at my first jumper show and kill it and wants me to be apart of his jumper/eq side of his team and do the a's next summer. It makes me nervous because what if I forget my course and make a fool of myself in front of all of those people at the a's. Schooling shows don't bug me but it will be my first a show. My horse has shown the a's his whole life so i'm not worried about him. Blah rant over. How do you all get over show nerves or remember course's?
