when the horse infront of you is finishing their show piece walk out of the line up so you are facing left and give the judge a nice out line of you in halt

then walk a few steps then off into trot and trot right round the first corner and down the long side, if poss show a few leghtened strides

on the next corner right canter, round the corner then ride a change of rein, simple change and into right catnter

then canter on to show and extension down the next long side in canter

come round large and stand opposite the line up , dont get on top of the judge sand a god 15m away so they can see you properly

bow I hate that bit i always feel like a nob

then walk quietly back to your place in the line up

check some vids of showing on you tube if you arnt sure

Ditto Calli - the only thing is that if you can't do lengthened strides in trot, don't bother. You'd be better off doing a neat simple show really well rather than one with moves that aren't pulled off properly. When coming to the end of your show make sure you are straight onto the judge.

The biggest thing is remember to smile and look as if you're enjoying yourself, especially at the judge, thanking the stewards with a curteous nod and smile when called will help too
