I wonder if any of you experienced show-goers can help me with a problem I'm having with my Irish - we have our first show coming up in a couple of weeks, and I'm having trouble getting Reuben to let me put his head in the correct position whilst standing.  He seems to hate being touched under the chin, as my ringcraft teacher advised, and ends up twisting and turning and generally getting himself in a tizzy! 

Have any of you come across this problem, and/or can you give me any tips, please?  Would be most grateful!

Thanks Sue, great advice. I've been trying out your suggestions this week, and I can see that, with patience, Reuben will come round...(touch wood!). Thanks for your help!
