This will be a fun show since most of the barn will be showing as well. Since I’m not able to wrap my head around why I get so nervous, I’m putting myself in a different frame of mind for this show.
As I make that first trot down the center line to salute, these are the things that I will be running through my head.
- “Sit up like your sitting in a straight back chair” Boy have I heard that a lot over the last few days.
- “Encourage your lower leg to grip instead of your knees”
- “Be happy you are fortunate enough to be riding this amazing horse”
- “Be happy you have your health and have the ability to ride this amazing horse”
- “Have fun!! Smile!!!”
