The judge’s directory provides a list of potential judges for committees to consider when selecting judges. Listing in the directory should not be interpreted as proven judging ability, but rather as a statement that these judges have made a conscientious effort to improve.
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.
