Learn About Horse Judging
Youth and adult spectators are invited to attend and participate in learning more about what a judge looks for at a horse show. This is a great opportunity to provide experience to future youth judging teams or just learn about the thought process a judge uses for successful judging. Dr. David J. Denniston, Associate Professor, from Colorado State University will be the clinician. For the first time in 2019 a 2-day program will be held. Day 1 will include discussions on the new AQHA/APHA scoring system for Horsemanship, English Equitation, and Showmanship and scoring Ranch Riding or Ranch classes. Day 2 includes judging approximately eight live classes.
Taking place in early April each year, the Horse Fair is a perennial favorite throughout the Iowa equine community as it offers a perfect end to the cabin fever brought on by a typical Iowa winter. Many consider it to be the grand opening to the new season of horse events. Everyone considers it a perfect excuse to be among like-minded horse people.
