Lead Line Gripe...

Ok so my daughter is going to be 1 next year and I am very excited to turn my seasoned show horse into her lead line horse. My only problem is... Every single lead line class I have ever seen (have not seen any rated lead line classes and honestly don't know if there are any) everyone wins. Don't get me wrong in a way I understand it feels good for everyone to win BBUUUTTT..... I want my daughter to learn that you can't and won't ALWAYS win. I don't want her to do lead line and get first all the time then start doing 10&under and get a second or not place at all and start crying. Am I the only one who thinks they should not give first to everyone all the time.

P.s. I think play days are an exception and perhaps schooling shows at the barn etc etc but does everyone get first because it is hard to judge a lead line class? Heck I do it all the time and there are some GOOD little riders out there.

Breed shows judge leadline classes with regular placings, at least in APHA. Try an upper level show?

Thank you for the FYI =) I've only done 3 lead line classes mostly as being a handler and I have watched a couple of non schooling show classes but nothing like Congress or rated shows etc.

Please note that for APHA leadline classes, the child must be between the ages of 3 and 8.

I should hope that other show associations follow similar guidelines.
