Hilda Gurney: Make judging constructive not critical. "I would like judges to be more positive", says the California based two time Olympian and FEI "I" judge. "I am a judge and a trainer and a rider and a coach. With some of the judges, it has been so long since they have been to a show that they no longer appreciate what it takes to get there, and they are willing to castigate the rider. They need to remember that it requires years of training, is a great expense, and demands a lot of effort. And people adore their horses. I recently took a bunch of students to a show, and the judge slaughtered the students. I am not talking about the score, but about the comments. It was almost cruel, and so unnecessary. It makes you almost afraid to send your students in to the arena. Judges should be more positive with the comments. They need to be encouraging so that riders will want to come back. We won't have horse shows otherwise."
