I just had my first contest and I sucked and got eliminated... How was your first competition?

I just had my first contest and I sucked and got eliminated... How was your first competition?
Dont worry, the begging is never easy !

My first show was terrible,
I fell off right in the middle of a jumping competition and I hadn't even started
First show my horse bolted skipped a jump and would not for all my protests slow down. Luckily we didn't get disqualified though.
My first hunter show whent fine, but my first jumper show, I was in a .65m and 3 .75m and I got eliminated in all 3 .75 :(
English:My pony refused EVERY JUMP and pooped in the middle of it:(
Barrelracing: I can't remember, but I used to own a race horse that did barrels and she ran race horse speed after third barrel and my nose was bleeding and I hurt my shoulder, neck, and back
I got eliminated from my first and only showjumping competition 😂 Dressage mostly went ok for me but did have a horse gallop into the dressage judges car which was not my finest moment
Jumping was fine, but first time dressage last week went horribly haha
Mine was an IEA show and is was on a pony she first got scared of a corner then had to pee the took of cantering but still managed to get a 3/6
