Horse Show Weekend

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.

  1. “Sit up like your sitting in a straight back chair” Boy have I heard that a lot over the last few days.
  2. “Encourage your lower leg to grip instead of your knees”
  3. “Be happy you are fortunate enough to be riding this amazing horse”
  4. “Be happy you have your health and have the ability to ride this amazing horse”
  5. “Have fun!! Smile!!!”
