Do you have advice on how to be confident in the show ring? Im a little older than most people when they start showing so it's pretty.

I was terrified before my first dressage show. So much so that I actually had to have my trainer warm up my horse for me. When I finally got on she did the best thing ever and started giving me a "lesson" in the warm up ring. It put me in the mentality that this was just like any other ride with her. It helped to think of it that way, just another ride, not a competition.
