    I never said anything about abusing officials- me and my mum have a whinge to each other or very close friends - but we also accept that that's how the showring is I just was saying that it is frustrating

    No, no, I wasn't implying that you did. I was just saying I would never cross a certain line, but I'd have a hard time being two faced to a judge like a lot of people are.

    I hardly think that holding a fair bit of decorum is being two faced, If you go through the right of complaint procedure everyone concerned is involved and you come in front of a select panel of judges who investigate the complaint. This is what happens here in New Zealand and it guards agains't full on fighting NOT that I am implying that, that was the initial thread starters intentions.

    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.

    Judging in Australia is very political I agree and its most definitely unfair. I don't own a horse but have travelled to many shows with horsey friends and often I see discrimination from the judges when riders with "different" horses compete. Percherons, Draught Horses and Paints, Pintos etc. are becoming increasingly more popular and judges here in Australia don't seem to mind this but I definitely know what showpony is saying when she says judges are like "you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours" Hope all goes well at your next show! :)

    Altough I'm usually the first one to say that the judging in Oz is mainly a popularity contest in regards to the original post re riding an appy, in Oz the horse would not have even been looked at in the english ring as it states in our rule book that horses are to be of a solid colour. As showpony stated there are some pallys and roans coming up in the pony ring, however if someone tried to ride a coloured hack in the open ring it would be a case of in, round and out!

    Sad but true
