Wellington, Fla. – April 15, 2019 – Every rider has finished a horse show wondering why they got the ribbon they did – or didn’t. Without access to high-level trainers, sometimes it can be difficult to understand a judge’s perspective. With the goal of bridging the gap between judge and rider, lifelong horsewoman and renowned US Equestrian (USEF) “R” rated judge, Susie Humes, is offering the judge’s perspective straight to your inbox thanks to her latest venture – The Winning Edge!
By submitting a video of your round through The Winning Edge, Humes will deliver constructive feedback of your ride through the judge’s eyes. Pace, position, timing, and turnout are just a few of the many elements to a winning round that Humes will make note of. The rider’s critique will also include an exercise Humes recommends to improve a particular aspect of the horse and/or rider, providing valuable information that can be applied the next time you ride or show to help to stand out in the show ring
Looking for your next equine partner? The team of panelists at The Winning Edge also offer in-depth conformation evaluations to advise you on the correctness or potential drawbacks of the horse’s build in relation to riding, training and showing. If you’re presenting your horse in hand, The Winning Edge will provide tips on how to stand your horse correctly in the show ring based on submitted videos and photos of your horse.
Humes’ primary goal of training is to improve horse-and-rider performance, followed by quality horse care and safety. Her insightful observations along with her professional advice and guidance have given her students the winning edge in the show ring for decades, with students winning each major equitation final, as well as countless hunter championships and grand championships at major horse shows across the nation. Fueled with a passion for horsemanship and education, Humes is dedicated to giving back to the sport that has given her so much.
