Judges Perspective.

My main focus will be the ability to maintain the basic leading position throughout the course.
The handler should remain behind the equines nose but in front of the equines shoulder.
There should be an arms length, on the lead rope, between the equine and handler, with the rope carried  with both hands holding.
I am looking for a basic understanding by the handler of the obstacle requirements.
The course directions may be called by another person.
