    I was thinking, in the interests of making Showing more funnnnnn, ppl could voice their grievances/irks....and others may learn from that in a non-confrontational forum? We all ask for what helps/is good....but maybe we can learn from what others dislike???

    For me:
    Horses with no feed/water at tie-up point
    Bridles with the buckles not aligned
    Straps not in their keepers
    Lack of gear checkers (shows a lack of concern from the Club)
    Kids not smiling cos Mums are Grrrrr'ing

    Another one when I'm judging is people not listening to what I've asked for for workout.Trot towards me means trot straight towards me ,no 20m to the left or right of me.

    Diiiiitto!!! (well I like bling but I can't stand megabling! What happened to color!)

    And the dogs...

    And people not taking care around stallions / colts and blame anything happens on you and your horse (the colt / stallion) when your taking all the nessesary measures!#(

    too many inexperienced ppl using chains on their horses
    using whips on front legs
    adding false stars, snips etc

    and my biggest pet hate is when ppl attend a show and their horses look terrible.
    ( underweight, barely clean, untrimmed, not turned out in general) I feel its very disrespectful to present a horse for judging when you have put no effort in.

    This REALLY bothers me too, when it is a Pony Club horse....does the Club Instructor have some duty here? Not sure, which is why I am asking! The horse, in PC attire, does represent the club.

    Mine - Dishonest competitors. Showing horses in classes which they are elligable for and lying to organsiers. I feel organisers have to crack down on paper work too bad if they left it at home!

    Panda Eyes on greys!!!!!!!!!

    Giant flags on pony browbands

    and yes PSO if that happened to me, I would NOT be happy
