Some Please Do’s for the Horse Show Ring
- Be clean and neat. This doesn’t mean having an expensive show ring attire,
but having appropriate clothing, in good repair and neat and clean is a must. Your horse should make a good impression as well. Your horse should be clean, neat and well turned out.
- Be prepared. Being prepared physically and emotionally. This also means having an understanding of the class requirements. Before heading to your first show, attend a couple of shows ‘sans horse’, so you know what to expect.
- Study the course. Take the time to learn your courses, if you are riding over fences. It may require you to break things down into simpler patterns. Do not rely on other competitors to assist you. Watch a few rounds and also study the course plan so there are no errors. If you go off course the judge will not be able to place you.
