2014 State Horse Judging Contest
March 17, 2014
Story Source: Ben Gallup
4-Hers from all across the state converged on the University of Missouri campus on Saturday, March 15, 2014 to test their skills in Horse Judging, reported Ben Gallup, State 4-H Youth Specialist. With the help of Stephens College, the Junior Paint Association and Rocky Mountain Horse owners we were able to offer ten classes for the members to evaluate and judge. Members have to have understanding of the breed standards plus they are asked to explain how they place the horses in a class.
Gallup summarized the day as, “The classes were wonderful, the food was outstanding, the help exceptional, the kids were engaged, the judges were spot on, the parents and coaches were helpful and the tones were developmental. What a great experience and opportunity for the kids”.
