Win or Lose

Don't lose sight of the fact that the horse show should be kept a sporting proposition.  It is a gentleperson's game.  If you aren't inherently a gentleperson, you should quit showing horses and take up something else.

There is really no place in the game for avaricious, grasping egotists. Be a good sport. If you don't

agree with the judge, forget it. There are other shows coming and maybe some day you will find a just that sees your horse as you do.We can't all win and we can't all agree as to which is the best horse.  The judge has been selected because he or she is an expert.  Take his or her decision in good grace and be a good sport, a gentleperson and a horseperson worthy of the title.

It's a great game for fine people and may the best horse win.
