    Go somewhere quiet with your horse and relax . Imagine exactly how you want the ride to go and breathe . If you're relaxed and confident, so is your horse . (: And talk to people ! You won't be the only nervous one, no matter what anyone says . Laughter is the best medicine so always have someone you can joke with . Soon you'll forget why you were nervous in the first place ! Good luck . (:

    I like that advice: Don't forget to breathe. That's always apropo, to almost any situation. Good luck ! You'll do just fine.

    Always look where you want to go.

    Don't look at your horse, don't look at the pole/barrel/ground, look where you want to go.

    Talk to your horse. Have a good verbal cue to go along with your physical ones, it will help you (and your horse) to focus and remember what you are supposed to be doing.

    Most importantly, relax and have fun! Even if you blow it completely, everybody's done the same thing (likely more than once) and nobody thinks less of you for blowing a turn or knocking something over.
