Oh, yes. At the last show, even though it was just an open schooling show, the judge was basically ignoring me for most of my classes. Granted, I was on the fat, thick-necked fluffy Icelandic, but he was well-groomed and shiny, braided up, and we looked as good as we could. After about the 2nd class, my mom even said that she saw her just looking over me in flat classes, and in the classes where we went into the arena alone, most of the time she said "thank you" before I was even done. For example, in Hunter Hack, we jumped 2 2' jumps, then hand galloped around the arena, stopped, and backed. We kind of messed up the jumps, since he was bending back toward the other horses, but we did a nice hand gallop. But before I had even stopped, she said "Thank you" and turned away to watch the next rider. I was so mad. Yes, he may not be the typical hunter, and we may be here just for experience, but at least have the decency and respect to let me finish my pattern! And stopping and turning are actually two things he does extremely well. :(
