Thank u Pierre fleury and Ema bexheti for the advice already feel better
Hello Daja,

I had a lot of troubles with nervousness at the beginning.
The problem with liberty shows is that there is no link. And at the beginning I was so stressed that it didn't work with my horses, they didn't have any landmark anymore.

I had to work on it, and tell myself 'it's just like at home', I relativise.

You have to know that your horse needs to trust you, you can't give your nervousness to them.

What will help you is to have a good preparation: go at the show earlier, see the ring...

I am the one that gets frustrated. My advice to you is sometime take b vitamins. For me alcohol helps even though it sounds bad but it calms. I usually take a sip of rakia.
Your very welcome
Thanks for the advice
Just have fun and don’t think about the places just think about the fun time with your horse
