2018 NCSU Open Horse Show Judges’ Certification List

— Written By

The 2018 NC State University Open Horse Show Judges’ Certification List is now available. The 101 individuals listed in this publication attended the 2016, 2017, or 2018 North Carolina Open Horse Show Judges’ Clinic and indicated they would be available to judge shows. The area of expertise (X) indicates the judges’ preference in judging assignments and is not necessarily representative of their clinic performance. Judges receiving an (*) asterisk in their judging preference area indicate they scored 90% or better in that respective division (a minimum of the top one-third of participating judges certified in each division regardless of score).  Participants were also required to take a written exam for each division. Scores for the exams were based on a 0-50 score and those scores were included, along with class scores in each of the respective divisions.

CERTIFICATION DOES NOT GUARANTEE EXPERTISE IN JUDGING AN ACTUAL SHOW. WHEN APPROPRIATE, SHOW MANAGEMENT IS ENCOURAGED TO REQUEST REFERENCES TO CLARIFY JUDGING ABILITY, SIZE AND NUMBER OF SHOWS JUDGED, PERSONAL APPEARANCE, AND ATTIRE WHILE JUDGING.
