As far as reasons/judging practice, Jon Wolf makes some great DVD's on judging and giving reasons. Our school uses them and they are really helpful to me (I'm basically the only Horse judging member from my chapter)
If you want real practice, I would call local barns/stables up to set up some classes for you (even if they are only halter)
Trust me it takes time. My freshman year we were 32nd, then my sophmore year we were 4th, and now 1st! It takes time to get the right people on the team who are good. I love this team, we are all very good.
