    If you are 100% sure this is not due to pain/discomfort or ill-fitting tack, then lots of leg, up to and including a solid kick.

    A few weeks ago I scribed for an "S" judge at schooling show (yes, we hire "S" judges!) who, after a test, spoke to a competitor for a few minutes about her use of the Baucher, and even suggested the...

    A judge saying something in the comments does not mean that the test score was affected. In fact, if a bias affected a test score, the judge would probably refrain from making a comment about it.

    The rule of thumb (and a good rule, I think) is that one should be schooling at least one level above where one is showing. In my opinion, the OP is not ready to show at 2nd. She should be working...
