Every Judge across the country just wants to see that YOU the Rider aren't adversely affected by the mishap.....that is what will kill your chances for a Medal or the Championship class greater than all else...that you as the Rider carries the mishap throughout the remainder of your ride in either your attitude towards your horse, yourself, other riders or persons on the rail. Immediately get yourself together and continue on. Your horse more so at this point than at any other point will look to you for direction, and if you are in a fit or angry, it will cause unnecessary tension for your horse, and your horse will begin to focus on your negative attitude rather than the class in which you are both participating! So Ride Sally Ride in a Great Manner and Attitude!
