I'd just say (really loudly) "Nice gamesmanship, mate! Pity you have to resort to this stuff to beat young girl with less experience than you!"

foxtrot, I was in a large pleasure class and when asked to lope, a herd of about 9 horses came thundering up behind me. I moved the horse into the corner and waited until there was an opening. I moved onto the rail and she stepped into the lope beautifully. Thinking I'd be penalized for moving into the corner, the judge saw if differently and we took 2nd.

Glad you sorted it out!

Just curious why people would do that and it's not something penalized? And what kind of classes are those? In dressage ring you show just by yourself (so it's not an issue), but I never had this problem in warm-up arena (people are polite and try to keep distance).

glad it worked out !

my sisters mare once kicked a horse in warm up when i was leading her around [winter HJ show] the rider of the other horse literally trotted her horse into my sisters horse. the other horse got kicked but was fine and the girl threw a hissy fit and complained about me, my sister, the horse, our trainer. it was a mess. the girl actually stopped riding because of it !!

I'm not seeing a downside in this case........

I ride a very sweet, but grumpy quarter horse. I ride at my barns schooling shows that they host on this lesson horse. I let riders know ahead of time that he is not friendly, and some girls have learned the hard way. Many of these girls don't understand arena manners, and often can;t control there horses. If you can't control your horse then please don't show. I manage my spacing and you manage yours, I am not responsible for the horse behind me.I understand your frustration and wish you the best.

I'm guessing this is a pleasure class either western or english. ALL horses are shown together in this case. The shows I've been to will divide them into rider age groups also.

In our area, this IS penalized. You MUST pass on the inside and if you don't, it's counted off on you. Oh, and some people just don't care and will do whatever they want.

I'm afraid I may be a rider like this guy, only not on purpose. I just watched a video of me from my last show, and I cut off two girls a few times. I feel awful about it. I'll try to be more careful tomorrow. I hate being rude, especially when I don't realize it!
