Horse Show Preparation
What does it take to prepare for a horse show? We’re not sure. We’re amateurs at this. But, what we can tell you is how we prepared for our horse show.
Ranae and I work together. We each have our strengths. Ranae is better at seeing my mistakes while riding. She helps me with posture, where my hands are, and keeps me looking good while in the saddle. I’m good at helping her with the cues she gives Dusty. If she is clear and decisive with him, he works much better for her. We have an agreement that whatever we say to each other while practicing stays out on the trail.
Some people are great at horse shows. They read the rule book, talk to the judges, check their scorecard after every appearance. I wish sometimes I were more like that. Reading the rulebook is like reading a software license – it makes my hair hurt. Judges intimidate me. And, I always forget to go back and check my scorecard.
Horse Shows Are A Good way to Meet Friends
But, going to horse shows is a good way to meet friends and share good places to take our horses that don’t require filling out a horse show entry. Are you a horse show person? Do you like to compete? If you have any tips or tricks, share them on the show. I bet there are people out there that would love to hear your story.
