Yes, the trot up is one of the most important days at an international show. It is very important that your horse is presented correctly and that you know how to trot it up. At some of the shows the team vet will check your horse prior to the F.E.I. vet check. Please have your horse available for him when asked. The following notes are only a guideline.
- Make sure you are aware of the trot up time and where it is being held.
- Make sure your horse is walked in hand prior to the trot up to loosen it up.
- You will need your FEI passport with you. This should have been checked at home to make sure your vaccinations are correct. If in doubt contact the International office well in advance of leaving home. Should anything go wrong with this you will not be allowed to jump and will be fined by the FEI.
- Your horse should be well groomed and you should be tidy. This includes correct footwear (riding boots or jodhpur boots), team jackets where appropriate, team t shirts if appropriate and work jodhpurs.
- Your horse should have a bridle on, a lead chain that is long enough and its number if these have been issued. Please make sure you have a rug for your horse as you may have to wait.
- Your horse should be practiced at a trot up. It should walk and trot easily in hand and make sure you always turn the horse away from you. Walk for 3-4 steps away from the vet. Then trot, however pull up to walk prior to turning the horse around, pushing him away from you. When straight trot in a lively step back to the vet.
- Once the vet is happy with the horses trot he will keep your passport. You will collect this at the end of the show when the vet has signed any relevant health papers that might be needed for your return journey.
- At all times when your horse leaves the stable it must have its number on so it can be identified.
