Yep, same here..It's a good system. Teaches kids that it isn't about the money put in the horse.. I see kids win classes with plain saddles and without the rhinestones.. it's about the kid and the horse. We usually have very good judges, some even from the 4-h's old horse judging teams so it just ties right back into what 4-h does for a lot of kids.
