Ask nayelnassar : what is your routine before a show?
Hi Tessy,

Are you asking about my routine at home before leaving for a show? Or the day of competition? At home we like to keep things light especially the week of the show. A light jump school and good flatwork in an ideal scenario. Sometimes you have to train certain things with specific horses but in general I like to keep it simple and easy on them. The day of a big class I like to work the horse that I’m competing in the morning, and then try to take a nap between that and my big class. Sometimes that isn’t possible but it’s what I like to do to feel reenergized.
