If I am lucky I can watch a few flat classes before I enter the ring to get an idea of what the judge likes. I also watch A LOT of showmanship videos on youtube to see various patterns, styles, and (not to sound mean) I look for flaws to kind of help myself see or remember what I personally might look like if I am not aware of what I am doing if that makes sence?
Thats exactly what I do. I also watch alot of showmanship patterns on you tube too.
