Talking Pattern Classes of d00m!!!

I'm going to hold a show later this year... And I am determined to have a series of difficult pattern classes. I know who I'm using as my judge, and I'm giving him free rein to design the patterns if he chooses, but if he doesn't? Guess who's evil little mind is doing it instead!!! MWUAHAHA!!!

I want these patterns to deflate egos, and destroy small countries!!!!

Call me crazy, but as an exhibitor and observer, I get tired of the same old classes that I can read through and memorize instantly. This part of the show is going to have it's own section so people can prepare..ish. Nice, ain't I?

There will be an Advanced Showmanship pattern, Advanced Horsemanship Pattern, Advanced Equitation Pattern, and an Advanced Trail Pattern.

I'm open to difficult maneuvers if anyone has suggestions >8D

I've got a lovely bunch of Neuticals,
There they are all standing in a row

Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head

Showmanship:
  • Back turns - D & back in more of a square shape LOL
  • Backing 'weaves' - I did one pattern once where we had to weave back and fourth between three cones that were SQUISHED together and OMG just starting out that was a pain! LOL
  • pull turns - still trying to master these
Equitation:
  • Change diagonals - Believe it or not I see a lot of people look down to check their diagonals around here if they ever have to switch or change lol.
  • Flying Lead Changs - More than one, maybe one each direction?
  • Canter to Halt - I like seeing the 'tricklers' canter canter canter trot a stride, walk, stop!
  • Pivot on the haunches(SP)
  • Pivot on the forehand (and then maybe a canter off??)
  • side passing!
That's all I can really think of right now for those two but hehehe it sounds like you have an evil pattern plan there. Would you mind sending me the SMS & Eq patterns to try out at home??!!

LOL Backing Weaves is a good idea! My horse would excel at them.. He has a super hard time backing straight!! I know everyone around here has a horse that is scolded if he backs anything less than pin straight, so is a very good idea!

Pull turns are fuuun 8D


And OMG the equitation! I know what you're talking about.. I always pin high in eq, and I figure it's because I can feel diagonals. It's not that hard, really.

I'll definitely post the patterns. I might make a hobby out of this yet!

I'd like a copy of these patterns too. My horse is the opposite of yours. She can't back crooked to save her life! Lol But its ok. As for suggestions, maybe:

Sidepass (like was said)
Pivot on the haunches and then straight to backing (harder than it sounds.)

And the Advanced Trail...I could go on forever!:

Walk through an empty ditch
Walk through a creek or a ditch filled with water
__________
Example: >>>>>>>>
___________

Cowboy Curtain aka Ride under a hanging obstacle (cut up tarp)
Bareback
Load horse into a trailer(rider must dismount)
Carry a raincoat
Walk over a tarp
Small jump (10"-14")
Ground Tie and walk circle around horse (10 foot away from horse)
Log/Tire Pull
Tunnel (Hay rings on their sides with wood on bottom so horse doesnt get hurt, and outside covered with tarp)
Teeter-Totter Bridge

Told you I could go on forever. Lol I can get more.

I was in a show where we had to back in a figure 8 between barrels.....and there wasn't a lot of room in between them. Another great one is trotting into the box and stop. Do a 360 inside the box, then walk so the horse's front feet are outside the box but back feet are still in the box. Now have the horse sidepass all the way around the box keeping his back feet inside and his fronts outside. That will separate the men from the boys.

A proper figure 8 kills most people. A proper figure 8 should be a circle, and you change your lead and make another circle (if at a canter).

Also Walk to Canter transition a lot of people can't seem to do for whatever reason.

Gordon Wright once told a student to take up swimming because he would never be a good rider, that rider was George Morris.

LOLOLOLOL So I got an email back from the guy, he said "You need to have regular eq and horsemanship patterns too. Most of the people I judge can't even master those simplistic patterns."

See, I'm really not being mean when I say they need something to knock them down an inch or two XD I think I'd like to go through it as an unjudged rider - then he himself could tell me what I need to fix 'in the moment'.

He did make a point that trail class would be a pain to set up and takes longer to judge, so I think that's off.

I agree Void, it's like they've never even cracked open a horse book.

Ever notice how the class that takes the most work is at the end of the pleasure classes? So you're dead tired, and then they say 'Drop yer ironz!!1'... It's just not fair 8|

I'm going to start a website with my evil patterns. I'll give ya'll the link when its fineeshed!!

lol. Wow! I can see that the trail course would take a while to set up. I know a LOT of people who can't do regular patterns. I wait eagerly for the website!
