I usually stand with my toes pointing in at my horse at a 45 degree angle and my head turned looking at the judge. You need to be aware of the judge's position at all times, yet you still need to easily see your horse's feet and this position makes it easiest.

I just wanted to add, make sure you look at your horse occassionally to make sure that he isn't resting a toe or that if he is a gelding, that he isn't letting it all hang out. :eek: Have fun and if you have any other questions, ask. I love showmanship.
