This week I'll talk about some of the pitfalls people make when going to a horseshow. Too many people "psyche themselves out" by worrying about who's at the show, who's watching, what horses are in their class, how much someone's saddle cost etc. Instead, riders should stay focused on their horse and themselves. Don't ride for the win or to "beat" a certain competitor, instead, ride to the best of your and your horse's ability and the winning will take care of itself in time. Ultimately, the goal is to be the best horseperson you can be.
