Ask Lillie Keenan: What is it like to compete on the A Ciruit, and to travel all around the country and world for showing? How do you prepare for these big shows?

Hi Sophie,

I am very fortunate for the opportunity to have competed on the "A" Circuit and to now show internationally. It is a thrilling experience and a demanding schedule for which I am grateful.
The key to preparing for these shows is a plan of preparation - or doing your homework. There is nothing that can sufficiently substitute for the confidence I feel when I have followed a thoroughly thought out plan for myself and my horses leading up to a major competition. Working with horses, it is critical to remain flexible, but it is impossible to stay consistent and to peak when you want to without a plan!

Thanks for the question
