My DD who is 9 has been riding for 5 years at our local stables. She has recently joined the school riding club and is riding once a week at a new stables. She has the opportunity to enter a show at the new stables in Dec. The classes she wants to enter are the 1ft 6 jumping and the best rider class. She will be riding one of the riding schools ponies - we do not find out which one till nearer the time!
She will have the opportunity to practice at our regular stables but will be riding a different pony who cannot be used for the show as we have no transport and I have no idea how a riding school pony who has never been outside the stables will react to a new environment.
I am under no illusions that she is going to be placed but I want to give her the best chances possible so I wonder if anyone can give us some tips especially for the best rider class.
