Advice To Parents From Kids – Video

Basics, Features, New Rider, Showing, Videos

As a follow-up to our segment where show jumping parents offered advice for new parents…. We asked young show jumpers, what would they like their parents to start doing- or stop doing – at a horse show.

Here’s what they said:


Stay Calm


Be Supportive

Be There

Don’t Be There (kids, go figure?)

Let Me Handle Things

Help Me With My Horses

Stop Giving Me Advice Before I Go Into The Show Ring

Let Me Manage Things

Enjoy Yourself As Much As I Enjoy Show Jumping

Don’t Interfere When I’m Discussing My Ride With My Trainer

Don’t Change A Thing

More Video Of My Riding So I can Review

And a BIG thank you to all the parents!
