first hunter jumper show.

Hi everyone well im going to a hunter jumper show at the end of august and am currently filling out my entry forms... so its a 4 day show and I am planning on doing about 3 classes a day. So day one ill do one hunter class and 2 jumpers (level 2 and 3) on day 2 im doin jumpers 3 and 4 with another hunter class then I will do level 2 and 3 on day 3 with one hunter class and level 3 and 4 one day 4. Does that sound like a good plan? What are your opnions??

Ok, I got a bit confused.... but why would you switch from level 2/3 to 3/4 and then back to 2/3? I'd just do 2/3 until your horse is ready to do 3/4 and then stay there. But that's just me! And probably depends on the horse....

Well since it is a lot of jumping I wanted to alternate with easy and hard days... is that a good idea??

Hm, I get what you mean... but I'd rather cut out some stuff rather then alternate that way (That's just me though, there isn't anything wrong with either way). Are you going for points or hoping for a champion/reserve? If so, I'd stick to the same divisions. Plus it might be easier for him to stick to the same heights each day. If your horse is ready to do the 3 and 4s, I'd just do that. If he needs a bit of prep, I'd start of the 2/3s, and end the week in the 3/4s. If you're worried about him getting too tired I'd either cut out the hunters or only do 1 jumper class a day. But that's just me!
