Plz share what you know about the preferences of the Big R judges who will be at WEF this year.
We all have preferences, so which direction do these ladies and gentlemen seem to gravitate? Old school, dressagy, (made a word), blahdeblah.
Please be neutral, professional, and civil, thanks.
They don't count your braids, or check what brand of shirt you are wearing. Conformity of dress and turn out is usual.....so that you can distinguish yourself by your performance. In THAT regard, however, with so much quality to compete with, having a properly PREPARED horse is more important. A beautiful jumper, a great mover, a gorgeous horse.....any and all of these qualities will leave the ring with out a ribbon if they are accompanied by freshness, exuberance, changes of pace, pulling, appearing spooky, over jumping...... Just watch a few classes and the number of very quiet quality horses, trained and ridden beautifully, by well coached and well dressed riders will show you WHAT the judges are looking for!!!
