Hi Molly

In the familiarisation it’s really important to me to keep it as calm, relaxed and happy as possible. Therefore I don’t overdo the exercises. I ride movements that are in my test and if they’re good I leave it at that, I don’t continue to drill the same exercise over and over. I finish with some easy long and low stretching which again, consolidates a calm and relaxed feel for the horse in the big arena prior to competing ☺️🐴🇦🇺
