The clinic is intended for 4-H and FFA youth members, as well as agricultural education coaches, wanting to prepare or improve their horse judging skills. Participants of all judging experiences and levels are welcome!
During the day-long program (9 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Colt Barn on the UWRF Campus Farm), participants will learn basic information regarding judging horse balance and conformation, with a focus on rules and judging criteria used to evaluate different classes (halter and performance). Participants will also learn how to effectively take notes for classes and organize them into sets of oral reasons. Several focus sessions will include evaluation and discussion with live horses and riders.
Classes will discuss and include the following topics:
Student participants will not only leave with judging knowledge and experience, but also a t-shirt and judging manual. Food and snacks are provided throughout the day as well.
Join Dr. Bass and the UWRF Horse Judging Team for a day of fun!
