First Time Horse Racing

For the first time with your horse or pony at a competition in dressage. Where you have to think about what it means and how to prepare yourself and your horse or pony for this? A competition dressage is not a few laps around a tray or drivring: a jury your driving skills and abilities of your horse or pony.

With your horse on race

Finally it’s time: after months of training you are ready, and we decided to go to a game. Regardless of dressage, driving, jumping, or any other part of the rider-law, it is the first time in the competition and remain exciting.Since most people begin with dressage, this is the basis for many sports, we continue in this article the first time in dressage.

Are we ready?

Or both horse and rider is ready for the competition, depends on two factors: first, the base to be reasonable in that. For B dressage, where each rider with green home, you need a few simple figures can ride. A circle, a dotted line, from change hands on the diagonal. In addition, we ask for a piece of medium trot and middle step. Walk, trot and Gallop must be checked, as well as the transitions must be operated correctly. The horse must have good speed and respond well to the aid. The attitude of the athlete must see nice and easy.
When the above factors are not all equally well regulated, it is still possible to enter the competition. Practice makes perfect, and often it is also nice to the horse or pony all gain competition experience.
Another factor is whether the rider and the horse are ready mentally. One rider still feels fear in the home, it is not wise to go on all day. A horse that scares in the home of everything, better get used to strange situations. A horse or pony should at least be able to go along with the other horses without attacking it, he has to hum and noise can suddenly load the trailer and the wanted. The driver must be pretty sure of himself. Nervousness and a little anxiety can best; but should be under control.

Practice match or the start card?

A friendly is a dressage which just runs like a real game. But for an exhibition match does not need a start card. Also all earned points do not count as a win. But there are many great prizes awarded during an exhibition match.
An official match with the Starter card: this can be requested via the KNHS. You must also be a member of a riding club. From 2012, start coupons out and replaced by a digital system.
The website startlijsten.nl can see when and where dressage competitions are held. Sign sometimes happens digitally by logging into startlijsten.nl, or by sending an e-mail message. You can also contact us by phone. Be timely: special game in B fills up quickly. Pay also the time, or if it is necessary to take the starting money to the game.

Preparations for horse and rider

The horse must be kept clean in order to see the match. Ensure that there are no black spots on the horse: if it is necessary, where the legs and tail. In winter, it is sometimes difficult to wash: use a good antiklitgel or spray so that the tail shine. Create the need also clean and lubricate them when necessary. Moons must be well taken care of: prefer braid. This can be achieved through the braids and twist on this later. Horses with long manes may wear a stallion or a Mare braid braid. It also allows the man loose, provided that they look very well cared for.
Poets also saddle and bridle. It is not allowed to be worn during a match boots or bandages: therefore they take off after warming or leave them at home.
The private competition attire consists of white pants, black boots, a dressage jacket and a white shirt or white shirt, with a plastron. Make sure everything is clean and looks neat. Long hair should preferably be twisted into a bun and can firmly put on a hairnet.

Race day

on the day of the race to make sure the horse or pony is ready in time. Manes plaited or combed horse is polished, everything clean and present. See also designed to be there. Wear in white Jodhpurs sweatpants: This prevents the white jodhpurs early dirty. In addition, a training jacket is recommended.
Horse or pony is fitted with a blanket if it is not very warm. Leg protectors on the trailer is good: it protects the bones, especially in nervous animals, and keeps the legs also reasonably clean during the trip. When the horse or pony to the trailer, check everything again: everything is available? Here is a list that you should definitely take on competition:

  • Racing suits: jacket, white, cream or yellow pants, riding boots or shoes with leather chaps, bright shirt or light blouse dressage, plastron, gloves, hairnets, hat, whip, spur, body protection.
  • Horse: saddle, girth, bridle, saddle pad, mat or sweat blanket, leggings, bridles and ropes
  • Contest: startpas, passport, registration fee, extra money to buy food
  • Care: baby wipes, extra rubber bands, hoof pick, brush, comb, extra noseband, other extra things, horse and drink yourself

The color of rijasje, gloves, boots and apron has been released: any color is permitted as long as the color is solid. Do not make a motley lot of it!
The easiest way is when a cleaning case made specifically for the games. Stop this brush, comb, hoof pick, spare parts, rubber bands, two pairs of white gloves, extra Bobby pins, wet wipes, startpas, passport and extra coupon, spare parts. This way you at least the most important always to hand.

Arrive at competition

Make sure that you arrive an hour beforehand, on the spot. First, find the Secretariat: usually located above a riding school or somewhere in a Cabinet or café. Log your workouts and startpas: sometimes you have to show it can pay the registration fee.
Now the horse or pony is unloaded: remove it from the trailer and saddle him. Bridle can now also.Sometimes it is nicer to saddle your horse in the trailer, if available. Have someone hold your pet while you take off your jacket and sweatpants. When you travel as it should be: jacket, boots, hat, it can make you just changing clothes in the car. Always make sure you wear your race clothing during your tracksuit.
Go with your horse or pony to losrijterrein. In the outdoor season this is a lost piece of land/lawn, recognizable because several riders ride together. During the indoor season this is often a separate arena or a part of an arena. Never heat up, where it is quiet and where white fence around it, or where it was found that this is often the ring.
Ring master will call you on time. Until then, you can just heat up at losrijterrein. Make sure that you do not run the second on the way: during the heating phase, the normal rules which also apply on an equestrian center. Riding with a helmet is mandatory.
When the master is calling your name, you go with him/her. He will guide you in the show ring. Follow the instructions in the ring master. Please note that some games do not have a ring master, let your readers or keeper the screen when you turn to act. You will be racing the ring confessed. Please note that the person who leaves the ring: that you do not ride in the way of each other. You take time to explore the show ring. Let your horse or pony a little trotting along the edges, especially along the jury box or the jury the car. Let him take a look at all of the creepy things and anesthetize him if necessary.
The jury put in most cases hand to your readers or so, if no one is reading test. These are signs that you can start. You will then have 45 seconds to actually start. Often saves you have to trot walking a circle and then come in to a. not distracted during the trial, when something goes wrong: just run and resume the test. Do not stop, because then the whole trial was completed. When your horse or pony somewhere scares, you have two choices: a volte drive and återkantade drive, or run. Both options have their advantages and disadvantages. This is often a matter of trying to what is best for your pet and what the jury.
Salute to the end of the trial, always neatly. Take the reins in the left hand and with your right hand. Only after afgroeten, you can reward your horse. A whip does not necessarily remain to be used: to the right is also possible. For greetings or whip with the left hand, along with the reins, whip so just hang right.
Replacement of the whip is allowed during the trial, but many judges find this disturbing. This can result in a lower number of points. Go the first time, or returning to competition, not for profit, but for the experience. This keeps the game light-hearted and funny.
