i've herd alot of neg things about those shows. I personally have no experience with it so I cant really comment on it. But I really dis like ppl who treat their animals like that. I noticed at alot of the serious AQHA shows alot of ppl treat their horses badly. Alot of ppl get mad and blame the horse if they lose a class when the fault really lays with in their poor riding. My horses ALWAYS come before me. Wither at a show, clinic or at home. I dont get to rest until they are taken care of. I also take care of my own horses. IE grooming, tacking, un tacking, cooling out etc. Unless of course I dont have time at a show between classes to take care of them myself. But thats the ONLY time I have a groom to take care of them.
