Advanced Horse Judging Course is Jan. 6-7
North Carolina State University will conduct an advanced horse judging short course Jan. 6-7 in Raleigh. The early registration deadline for the course is Dec. 6
The North Carolina Cooperative Extension Horse Husbandry program in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at NC State in cooperation with the North Carolina Horse Council is providing the course.
The course is designed for people with horse judging experience who may or may not hold breed association judging cards. It is excellent preparation for people preparing to attend the Color Breed Seminar or take breed association judging exams. People who have successfully completed the horse husbandry program's introductory judging short course may take the advanced course regardless of judging experience.
The two-day course features in-depth training emphasizing western and huntseat classes typically judged at breed association-sanctioned shows and state championship open horse shows. Participants will judge a variety of classes on videotape. The course will focus on scoring and placing of classes with minimal lecture time. Participants who successfully complete the course will receive 1.5 continuing education credits through NC State University.
The fee for the course is $80 prior to Dec. 6, after which the cost is $110. Registration must be postmarked by Dec. 6 in order to avoid the $30 late fee.
