I've noticed that at local show people tend to be a lot more friendly. However sometimes you get the occashional AQHA, APHA, or "big" time hunter showers who wont give you the time of day. When I first started showing D in hunters (A jumping paint! God forbid!!) I was toally ignored. Then suddenly when I started winning everyone was nice to me and treated me like thier best friend... WIERD
THEN my friend who shows AQHA and is the nicest person in the world! Was showing at a local show for fun and saw a fellow AQHA shower. Said hi and got no response, we we were talking about how she should write about this show in the QH journal and suddenly the woman came to us and said:
"You write for the journal?"
"What's your name?"
"Insert friends name"
"OH! I love your articals blah blah blah"
and now she acts like miss. Nice girl after not talking to my friend for the first two years they showed together.
