Showmanship Questions!!

Okay some basic showmanship questions--

After you get dismissed from the pattern and you are walking to line up, should you look back at the judge? Should you nod to him or her?

At the beginning should you nod?

Thanks,
Kc

Also, I have noticed that people don't smile, I always smile in showmanship, should I just smile when I'm setting up?

I don't do showmanship, but I did watch it at the world and took some clinics. Smiling seems part of the class, and always acknowledge your judge at the beginning and end. Google search cheyenne peterson and ritzy investment, she won the world show in showmanship and she's amazing!!

Looking back on the way to the lineup is pretty subjective, IME. I've participated in G&S clinics where failing to do so is construed as essentially begging for elimination, and I've been to other clinics where the demonstrator treated it as "this is something some people do." I've seen judges actively watch for exhibitors to look back, and I've seen others move right on to the next entry without even looking at the last entry's "retreat" to the lineup. I say, better safe than sorry, go ahead and look back.

Acknowledge the judge with a nod as you start your pattern, and again when you are dismissed from inspection. A simple nod is perfect.

Smiling all the time is excellent! Do your best to have it be an authentic smile, not a pasted-on costume smile. Judges love to see exhibitors enjoying themselves and showing off their horses! From the minute you enter the ring, you're being judged - Keep Smiling!
