Re: [RC] horsemanship learning NEVER ends---was CTR Thumbs down - rides2far@xxxxxxxx

I have a question on this. I have limited exposure to CTR but have not noticed that equitation in itself was judged. The only judge I've been exposed to is one of those stand in the stirrups at all times type people who would be eaten alive by a dressage instructor. Do they actually critique you riding skills or just whether you stood up and leaned forward going up a hill?
