Equine Clinics

Adult and Youth Horse Judging Clinic

March 1-2, 2014

UWRF is hosting a two-day Horse Judging Clinic for youth and adults who wish to learn about objectively judging horses and preparing for horse judging contests. Enrollment is limited to 50 students.

The clinic aims to increase understanding of the objective judging criteria used to place halter, Western, and English performance events typically encountered in most judging contests. The organization and presentation of oral reasons will also be stressed and individual reasons instruction will be conducted in several sessions over the two days.

Clinicians include Dr. Kris Hiney, the coach of the UWRF horse judging team, industry professionals, and members of the UWRF Judging Team.

Dr. Hiney has coached judging teams for 14 years with two AQHA World Championship teams, National and Reserve National International Arabian Horse Association Champion teams, and multiple top 5 National Reining Horse Association teams.
