Horse Judging Academy
NC 4-H’ers, coaches, leaders, and parents are invited to register for the NC 4-H Virtual Horse Judging Academy. This is a set of online, self-paced modules that focus on how to prepare for horse judging contests. How to organize and deliver oral reasons will be covered, along with multiple example sets of oral reasons that are delivered by former horse judging team members. In addition, there are several practice classes and presentations on how to judge Halter, Hunter Under Saddle, Western Pleasure, Ranch Riding, Gaited Pleasure, and Country English Pleasure.
The cost to register is $15. These modules will be open and available for review until December 31, 2021. You can access the page as frequently as you wish. Registered 4-H’ers that wish to compete in the April 10 4-H State Horse Judging Contest will not have to pay a registration fee to compete in the contest (a registration form will still need to be submitted).
When you register you will also have the option, at an additional fee of $6, to have a copy of the new NC 4-H Horse Program Horse Judging Manual sent to the address provided! This manual has been updated for 2021 and contains details on note-taking, criteria for judging and scoring classes, organizing reasons, terminology, and sample sets of reasons. This resource is designed to be helpful to both coaches and contestants at all levels.
To obtain the registration details, please complete this form.
