Just keeping your composure is probably the most important thing. Don't get too hasty or ahead of yourself when it comes to finding distances, go into your corners(if your doing a jump off and don't have time at least get to the jump straight, I'm not sure if your doing jumpers or not),
don't lean at the jumps, stay back till your horse is in the air, because if you get really deep to a jump, not supporting your horse can mean a rail down.
if your horses is getting two out of control, half-halt(see saw the reins lightly if needed), get him back and go from there. you may have to do this a few times if your horse is overly excitable. D
