Thumbs up Grand Prix.. Any tips?!

I'm going to do the grand prix level 0, 1, and 2 at the next hunter show I go to, which will be in a couple weeks. Any tips? I've done the level 0 and level 1 and won both times I went in. My horse seems to love the colorful fences, hills, bigger arena etc. But does anyone have any newbie tips?

My goal this year is to make it back in the AQHYA Jumpers at the youth World this year.. Last year I got 8 faults with 3 time faults, and the year before I fell off due to my complete nervousness and bad positioning (first year.. ugh.) But recently, my horse has been feeling great, jumping better, and more willing to go forward when I ask him to, so I feel like this goal is a little more reasonable now! We won the Congress in the youth jumping this year.. Probably the best moment of my life!

I feel like my horse could be great at the jumpers/grand prix, so I feel like I should ask for some tips

I'll be sure to get someone to videotape my go so you can let me know what you think!

Thanks everyone(:

No no no no! No way! Like the level 0 which is I think 2'9? Level 1 is 3' and level 2 is 3'3.. I think. Wow, I don't think I would have the guts to jump that high..

Just the baby open hunter show stuff(:

Grand Prix is THE Grand Prix. There is only one level. You might be thinking of "mini prix"s which are offered at each level.

Yup that's it! I'm just saying what it says on the showbill..

This is the AQHA jumpers from 2009:
This girl also got 3rd in the equitation over fences, and was reserve world champion in the working hunter. She had a wonderful year!

The one I'm doing in a couple weeks is a schooling hunter show.. But I do AQHA hunters on a regular basis.

Yeah I know, I don't think I'd have the guts to do the actual Grand Prix.. I'd probably have a nervous meltdown!
