    I'm glad your not a judge because YOUR "grievance" is nothing short of rediculous :confused:

    in hacking-i hate people that talk in the lineup aghhhhh! drives me crazy
    also dont like people who use equipment that they dont know how to use e.g. double bridles/spurs/harsh bits then the poor horse has to endure yank,spur,yank *cringes thinking about it*

    I have PM'd you MKPG. The topic is Showing Grievances, not Personal Grievances.

    This thread IMO is to "air" what annoys us in regards to showing/other horse disciplines WITHOUT getting personal, or belittling others.
    I'm sure we all can say what we don't like/hate without people making comments like yours.

    Oh & MPKG, i know of a horse that currently competes Official (& has done for quite sometime) & wins/places WITH hairy ears. Ok the long bits are trimmed off, but the ears aren't "boned" out. ;) And rightly so, as the horse is prepped from the paddock & nope... this horse is not laughed out of the ring. ;)

    I hate dogs at shows.

    another thing well 2 things actually.... 1st blocking other horses/ponies so the judge cant see them and talking to the judge whilst others are doing their workouts makes me sick#(

    If a horse is not that judges type be it in hack or breed, learn from it and don't put yourself under that judge again. That's what hacking is all about#(

    marshalls squeezing their kids or their clubs children infront of the list... when there is a list...

    From a volunteer marshall (without kids), my pet hate is impolite/ ungrateful riders. Whilst gate marshalling recently at a show, for 5 hours, I counted 6 people who said "Thankyou", when I let them in/out of the SJ ring.
    That "holier than thou" behaviour really gets my goat..................

    ...............I'm on a roll now.
    Also recently marshalling at a SJ show, calling riders (in list order), and they ignore you !!! Then they get peeved when you send someone else in who's been waiting patiently.................

    It really irks me that people still take hay to shows and never clean the mess they leave behind or the pile of poop near the float or fill in the holes that their horses dug in the grounds that someone is trying to maintain.

    Yeah it prob swings both ways.. lol I have had on two occations sat close to the gate knowing my turn is coming up (been among the last ones and had to wait a long time), having kids squeezing past and let through... guess I was too kind not to say anything. :p

    doesn't quite make sense:confused:, in a breed class the same breed is judged against:confused:

    Do you want to elaborate?

    Not at a dilutes show. 3yo pally QH is judged against a 3 yo pally RP.

    When it came to judging the 1yos yesterday I know Kimaley had lots of trouble deciding. She spent at least 10 minutes walking up and down after the runnouts and detailed examinations.

    I hope to god I dont ever get experienced enough to judge. Its hard work LOL
