Treat it as a normal day. Then you have routine to fall on and the horses relax naturally
Def lunge before the show. This is something I do with my horse because he gets nervous before we show and it really helps calm him down. Also try to get into the ring early in the morning to show your horse around and it’s a bonus time to work out nervous energy
