Warm Up Etiquette - Reminders Horse working at faster pace always gets the outside track. Walking on a long rein? Stay well to the inside track. Give way to horses doing lateral work or more advanced movements eg lines of changes. Nobody on foot in the warmup arena!! If you need to stop eg to tighten your girth, move well to the inside track, or exit the arena and re enter after.Keep your eyes up and communicate with other riders. If you are having trouble with your horse, politely ask if you can "reserve" a small corner where you wont upset other horses. Keep coaching voices down, not everyone appreciates a "free lesson". As a general etiquette point: please no videoing or photographing other riders without their permission, unless you are an official photographer.🐴🐴🐴🐴 ... See MoreSee Less
