	There is another alternative. Take your own well mannered, clean and
groomed horse into the class yourself. If  the judeges were presented with
a handful of "pros" with quivering greased up nervous wrecks, and a dozen
clean, happy, well conformed horses, they might  just pin the best horse.
Remember, they can only judge what's presented to them.
	It might not be worth the bother if you're not already at the show, but
anyone who is there for the sporthorse classes might go to the minor effort.
If not for the judges, how about for the people in the stands?
