The big Gold Coast horse show is coming up in Feb. I want to ride it REALLY bad. However, here's my issue:
The jumpers take place within the "Equidome" which is an indoor/enclosed type arena with bright lights, bleachers, loud speakers, and lots of other things to spook at! My guy is pretty sensitive to begin with, and we've come quite a long way with our training in regards to his spooking issues. I know for a fact that he's never been in an environment like that. (And truth be told) I am a little worried about my pride if I get tossed at such an elite show.
So here I am... looking for words of wisdom from my fellow equestrian peers! Has anyone ever ridden a show like that? Or have any ideas how to maybe train for such an environment??
