So I'm entering a school showjumping day competition and it has Equitation (top Score) AM7 and 2 Phase in 65 cm.
I have never seen nor attempted equitation but I really would like to give it a go. I've asked my friend who has been riding for 5 more years than me but she's never really done equitation too.
-What is it all about?
-What do the judges look for?
-Tips and ideas on how to approach it.
-Tack Ideas. I have blue web reins so I don't think I'd be using that for equitation, I have black plain leather reins but I would never jump with them because they slip really easy. Am I better off buying black rubber grippy reins or should I buy plaited leather reins. And do you put boots on the horse in equitation?
