Place at horse shows by learning what the judge is looking for! Stay tuned for tips on how to get andkeep the judges attention.
Some one asked me, "why do you do this?" and I say, "i want to educate people so they understand why they are placing/not placing so they can: 1. educate themselves 2. Educate their students/clients 3. Educate their horses 4. Win more ribbons and Championships ... I also want to go into a judging situation where I get to judge the horse's form over fences and actual equitation rather than tally up the major errors and pinning the winner based on the number of mistakes that WEREn't made. I call this negative judging. I f I can educate people and show them how to remove the major errors then I can actually judge the form, placement and quality of the jump. And that is what I want to do. Rather than placing horses based on their errors but being able to place horses acording to their form, quality and style. ~Laura Horse Show Judge
