I have recently decided to enter a local small show, but one of the classes is called "best combination." Im not sure what it means, colour coordinated, best teamwork? Any replys welcome!!! xx

I would also say it is how the horse and ride work together. How he listens to you and how effective your aids are. If both of you are working in harmony and relaxed then I am sure that is what they will be looking for.

That sounds like a good class - so often a push button horse is carrying a rider who blatantly can't ride, but they'll beat another combination who are working well together but the horse is inexperienced/young or whatever. It's nice that the rider gets recognition too, so often you see people sat on the cantle with their legs stuck forward hanging onto a double bridle - with a red rosette attached. Showing is so cliquey! Whatever happened to a classical seat?!?!
