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