Okay well I'm not a hacky but I don't mind the occasional show, the judges are what annoy me because theres not a certain thing that they want in the ring. For example: I was in my rider class, it's meant to be about the rider, so heels down, toes in, sit back really straight, and elbows bent etc. I got once told that my riding was too quiet..? So I fixed it by being a little active in my next show, this time the judge tells me I need to keep still. Then some judges don't place you because your horse was not rounded, it's a rider class, they shouldn't point it out in the first place. And some judges pick the same person because they like chestnut horses that day.
Another time I heard a lady hand the judge after the class some money and said, " thanks for getting her qualified"
That's all I have against hacking so any tips in the ring , how to approach my classes, grooming, workouts etc.
And please tell me your experiences !
By the way I can't get my horse rounded in the first place , working on it though!
Hacking is not all bad it's for fun if you don't take it seriously, laugh about it, and a good place for experience. There are so many more stories I have with hacking but I don't want this to be too long Posted via Mobile Device
