Secret of winning dressage

Junior trainer was standing by the bar at the Hartpury arena during the winters championship, in front of him 3 large whiskies .
Senior trainer crept on him un noticed and with a tap on the back nearly gave him a coronary “WHAT'S UP JUNIOR what all these whiskies “ he asked
Junior replied “I am celebrating my first national win I won the BD halt walk test”
“That's good how did you do that ?“
Junior continued “I did what you told me ages ago if I want to succeed in the dressage world, I sucked up to the judge”
“That brilliant” Senior Trainer said “it deserve another whisky have another one on me”
Junior looked at him nodded his head and said “Thanks but no thanks if the first 3 whiskies will not remove the bad taste I don't think the fourth one will do it either “
