    i mean he is getting the cues we were workin at not working out. I worked out but he would not trot in showmanship and he would stop in front of me. But he does not do that any more he is listening to the cues now. Sorry qabout confusion I think im about to confusing my self. And I know about presenting my body and being cofendent.

    Haha. Its all good. In some cases I do hit my horse with the lead rope behind me on his stomach, when trotting off. I usually have to do it because he has started to go to sleep and is no longer paying attention.

    that's what he does he will not pay ation but I had the whip still from lunging so I taped him with it. Sorry for confusing people but it was a dresage whip. Sorry if you thought it was a lung whip

    Hey bgood in showmanship my trainer just told me your aren't suppose to look at the judge anymore??? I have always been told to and a judge even told me to stalk her once lol! I've only done open shows and she does AQHA & APHA so is that correct?

    Also is a pattern class like in horsemanship or equitation do you glance over at the judge at all?

    Ok Showmanship tips now haha!

    I never use a whip. I think they can get smart to when you don't have one and not listen so well. You always have a lead rope tho. I always use the end of the lead rope if my horse gets a lil lazy or sleepy.

    For the back up I never pull his face to go back. I want to back off my body language. So I'll start walking towards him and if he doesn't back up he will get a tap from the lead rope on chest.

    For piviots. Take your time start out slow. Pull your horse forward, don't push back. You have to get the horse to move his shoulders and alot of them lock those things up and move their hind quarters. For this you have to walk confidently toward the horse and you can use the end of the lead rope to tap them on their shoulder if they lock up. If they start moving their hind quarters over alot I will give a lil tug on the lead rope to tell them that's not what I'm looking for. Make sure their body stays in a straight line and they don't over bend their neck so they don't have to move their front feet as fast.

    Teaching your horse to set up takes forever!!!!! Repitition repition repition! Once your horse starts understanding how to set give him a time frame or they will always take forever. Like 10 secs! I had to learn the hard way!

    Ok wow! My horse always does well, I'm the one that needs help lol! I like that paper idea to keep your elbows in. I'm going to try that for sure! Any others?

    In showmanship I always look the judge in the eye, in pattern classes I don't look at the judges at all.
