Check your stirrup leathers
If you've never gone out competing on your horse but now feel ready to give it ago my article is here to help give you tips and advice on what to expect and how to prepare for it. I hope you find this article informative and useful.
Firstly, you need to make sure you are genuinely at a level, which is safe to compete at. Competitions scenes are very stressful and exciting for your horse and you'll often find they are far livelier than normal. Along with this there can be some silly people in the show ring, which you will need to stay away from and their stupidity can sometimes but you in danger. If you think you're ready it will be an enjoyable experience.
You'll need to make sure that not only is your tack presentable and smart but it's safe too. Check stirrup leathers, reins, bridles etc to make sure all the leather is good and the stitching is still in tack. There would be nothing worse than cantering to a jump and your stirrup leathers breaking. In some classes they will expect you to be immaculately dressed and tack to be very clean so if this is the case really check over your tack to make sure it's nice and clean.google_ad_channel = "7940249670, " + AB_cat_channel + AB_unit_channel; google_language = "en"; google_ad_region = 'test';
