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

    Ok Showmanship tips now haha!
    You have to look at the judge in showmanship. Eye contact is important. In Horsemanship you have to look at the judges so they can nod to you so know when to start your pattern, and look at the judge at the end of your pattern to be excused.

    When I show in Showmanship, I pretend like I am trying to sell the horse to the Judge.

    I proudly present the horse with confidence and proper posture, I make polite and attentive non-threatening eye contact to let the judge know I am acknowledging their presence and interest in my horse. I always seem to really be happy to be handling the horse. I usually have a big -sincere- smile on my face too. I train my horses to respond to cues lightly to where it looks like a real pleasure to handle.

    I know it sounds silly, but it helps me focus in the ring ;) And think of it this way... when you go to buy a horse you -do- observe the owners behavior, posture, and the way in which they handle horses. If they are slumped over a chair in a filthy t shirt and they looked frightened around horses, and stutter/evade eye contact when mentioning how the horse handles.. you would probably feel really uncomfortable buying a horse from them. But, if you see someone dressed professionally, with good posture, a big smile, and a genuine excitement about handling their horses... you'd feel more apt to trust them to sell you a horse.

    I hope that helps ^^

    Ok thanks. That's what I do. I was just checking because when she said that I was very confused.
