UWRF is hosting a two-day Horse Judging Clinic for youth ages 12-18 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 youth 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 with youth will be conducted in several sessions over the two days.
Day one is open to beginner youth judgers and those wanting to review the basics of horse judging. Day two is open to both beginner and advanced youth judgers, as well as instructors (i.e. 4-H, FFA) and coaches with previous judging experience.
Day two instruction for 2014 will focus on Society Breeds-other types of horses and Horsemanship. The offering on day two is new each year! Last year, day two focused on Western riding and trail.
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.
