showmanship/halter videos please
Does anyone have, or know of any showmanship videos from the time they enter the arena, to the time they leave. I cant find any on youtube. Thanks
I just downloaded a couple. Look for the one labled NCQHA YouTube - Dspammsters's Channel. I actually have a few on my page.
Was there a reason you needed to see "from the time they enter the arena"?

Yes there is a reason...lol, it will settle my nervousness seeing the whole picture, I know it really doesn't make a difference, but it will make me feel better.
I'm afraid I will freeze up and not remember anything, and forget my pattern. I just want to see the show situation as much as possible!
Aha!! I thought so. Deep breaths.
Different shows manage things differently. It's par for course at breed shows to "stage" (like you see me doing) which means your ready at cone "A", do your pattern, then exit. But local schooling-level shows will have everyone enter the ring and then pull you out one by one to work your pattern. When you're done, you line up again. It's important to remember your quarters when dealing with the later type of situation. And you must constantly show to the judge. A lot of judges will turn and survey the crowd to see who's paying attention.
No matter which situation, you will almost always "stage" while the previous competitor is finishing up their pattern. That means be ready at cone "A". Don't hang back. Unless the judge tells you otherwise.
E-mail me if you need a therapy session beforehand. LOL.

Have someone make up patterns for you, and then memorize them and do them (1 at a time). Once you figure out how to do this at home, doing it at a show becomes second nature.
I had a family friend ask me after a particularly bad blown pattern, "Did those judges change the pattern on you again?" That was before I found the best way (for me) to learn it.
I just might need that before the show therapy session!!
It's on the 13th of June, and I already have butterflies just sitting down thinking about it! I have been thinking about all the "what if" questions in my head, especially memorizing my pattern, that would be just my luck going and forgetting my pattern and freezing up:oops:
So I'm just watching all the different shows I can find online for now!
Pam - What did you do with your hair in the videos? I cant really tell... is it just in a bun type thing, or in a net?
