I have. I've been to quite a few shows here in the UK, where competitors have been less than impressed with a judges decision. I find the majority of judges are very fair, but you do find the odd one, who can be bought, or place for the wrong reasons, or place because their face fits.....
Also you have the odd competitor who thinks their horse/pony should be placed first everytime. These tend to be the ones who complain against the judges decision.
But whats that saying?! "Beauty is within the eye of the beholder" (something like that anyway) But my point being, we all have different tastes, what one person finds beautiful and should have first place, another may think its not that beautiful and would place lower.
