If its just a fall fair, then they shouldn't ask you to do anything to tricky. The judge will ask for a walk, jog, lope (the annoucer will call out) usually you will do your w/j/l one way and then reverse and do it the other way aswell. They ask you to reverse normally only at the walk and jog however if they do ask for it at the lope, make sure you switch your leads once you come back onto the rail, unless they say "reverse at the lope and continue on a counter canter" or something like that. Some judges will ask for you to halt your horse and back up, sometimes they will say 5 steps or a certain number, but its best if you back up more so that the judge is able to see your horse back up. If its not asked on the rail, the judge will usually ask you to back your horse up in front of them when you go to line up and wait for your placings. Its not very difficult, just remember to have fun and don't worry! :) Hope I helped.
