So I may be getting a little nervous. I haven't actually shown at anything more than IHSA or primary shows in 9 years, and I'm showing at a Gold show this weekend. I'm doing AA and One Meter hunters, and a medal. Does anyone have any tips and tricks for keeping my cool and being prepared? My biggest concern is I have a really hard time remembering courses - not as much of a big deal for the regular hunter classes, but I have a Handy and the Medal to worry about. It usually takes me about 5 minutes of tracing patterns in the air like a loony, then I'm still nervous and convey that to the horse. Anyone have any tips? And links to a packing list, because I'm sure I'll forget something!
