The morning consisted of demonstrations and talks on show attire, show preparation, plaiting, washing, and quatermarks. After putting into practise what they had learned on there own ponys, we then had a well earned lunch break. The afternoon covered a ridden demonstration on how to present yourself to the judge, what the judge looks for , and how to ride a balanced polished ridden show and the importance of showmanship.
