Calling all show people!!

I'm going to be showing in some pleasure classes on sunday. And I have some important questions to ask you experienced show people.

When you are on the rail, is it ok to do a big circle and go back in the line so it's less crowded? I was told you can, but my source isn't the most credible.

Also, when you are trotting and then they say reverse that means turn around while trotting right? That same source said that it meant I should stop back, and then turn around...

Somebody, PLEASE help me!!!

yes if it's too crowded you can make a circle and go back in line, I used to do it all the time because the little pony I had was a sure quick little trotter, lol

As far as reverse you just turn the other direction in a trot, you don't stop and back up then turn around I have never heard of that before, they do have a section that ur supposed to stop and back up but ur usually lined up to do that.

"The horse you get off is not the same as the horse you got on; it is your job as a rider to ensure that as often as possible the change is for the better."

hmm, i'm riding western pleasure so I don't think that stopping is a good idea. I watched the videos of big AQHA and Arabian WP shows to see what they do and they didn't stop...

I think when your friend was talking about stopping at the reverse, she was talking about how they USED to do things. I've seen it before where they call for the reverse, the rider will halt and do a reverse on the hindquarter and walk on. I havent seen them do that in quite some time though, now they just reverse at the walk...

arabs never stop and reverse in western pleausre, hunter pleasure, country pleasure, english pleasure, park, show hack, equitation, etc. Unless the judge calls for us to halt and reverse, at that time you halt, turn around, and halt again and wait to be told if your going to walk, jog or trot, or lope or canter off
