Hey Guys, I dont know really what to say but I love riding but because of expenses and my family my parents wont allow me to have a horse. They are really good though because they allow me to ride my best friends horse and have allowed me to get riding boots, jodhpurs and a helmet. I have been riding my friend Maddie's horse 'Chinga', I have been through a lot lately with friends and school, but riding has been amazing and Maddie and chinga have helped me through everything. Okay so why I'm really here is that I have been lucky enough to be allowed to compete on Chinga in September, in Show Jumping. It is only 50cm starting and it is only Hc as it is a 12yr and under. I was wondering what did you guys do before you first event? How do you prep yourself? What pointers do you have for me?
