Warm up well!

Here we are relaxed and happy warming up in the Sydney International Equestrian Centre warm up arena at the NSW State Dressage Comp.  Getting the warm up routine right is so important to setting ourselves up for the best possible results in the test.  This is true at all levels of dressage but even more so with a young and inexperienced horse.  It is by far better to get all those nerves out of the way in the warm up arena rather than in front of the judges 🙂

I always give ourselves plenty of time before the test so the warm-up routine is not rushed and we can relax and get focussed on the job ahead.

Warm up well!
