Curiosity... why are the classes triple judged? I realize that there are often more than one judge in a class. But when I was showing MANY MANY moons ago, the judges would confer and come to a consensus for placings. And that was in pleasure riding... all the gymkhana classes were timed events... Not that it would make either of them any less really really top notch... just wondering.

At local shows, the judge's placings are announced individually. Three judges is the usual number in the ring, that's what I mean by triple judged, but sometimes there are two and rarely four. I think four is the maximum. At championships the judge's scores are tabulated together using a system to determine placings. If they all had to confer, we'd be there all week! Lol
