When in the warm up arena, try to scope out possible competitors. See if any of them have a nervous horse, if so let them be far away from you in the show pen, and if you see a horse going much slower than your horse try to go in front to them. I just try to have an idea of what might go on in the show pen. The one thing I try not to do is start comparing my horse to theirs. Just makes me more nervous, so I just figure I'll let the judge do that.
Good Luck! - Oops just saw the date of your post - I hope you did well!
