So, I have 7 days for my horse and I to learn Showmanship before our first show! Yeah, I kind of procrastinated on that one. We had a training session today and my boy actually did pretty good. And it was even kind of fun!
I don't have any high hopes for blue ribbons in Showmanship, but I want to make sure I follow the proper rules and be respectful to the judge.
I know, before I start my pattern, I wait until the judge acknowledges me before I start. But, after my "inspection," do I wait again for the judge to nod (or whatever) before I finish the pattern (or head to line)? Are there any other points during a Showmanship class where I need to wait for the Judge for any reason?
Any other pro tips on Showmanship are welcomed and appreciated!!
