Day 2: Stick With It!

This tip is for anyone from the rider taking the winter off from showing to the person who is in warmer climates and preparing for competition: Ride the same no matter what your show schedule is. When I train my horses including my Pan American mount Paragon, I always try to keep their program the same. Their warm-up doesn’t change from working at home to at the show, and I don’t try to drill the movements in a way that seems like cramming for my tests. Find what works for you and your horse and stick with it.
