The Introductory Horse Judging Short Course is scheduled for October 30–31, 2021, in Riddick Hall at NC State University. This course is taught at an introductory level for those with limited horse judging experience. Emphasis will be placed on teaching the judging systems appropriate for judging various classes in the western, hunt seat, saddle seat, and non-trotting divisions. This course is also a great refresher course for experienced judges that are looking to attend the certification clinic in November, and also 4-H and FFA horse judging team members and coaches.

The Open Horse Show Judges’ Certification Clinic will take place November 20–21, 2021, at NC State University in Riddick Hall. Individuals completing the clinic will be included on a list of suggested horse show judges that will be annually revised and distributed to open horse show organizations located in North Carolina and surrounding states. Participating judges will judge 26-28 conformation and performance classes, and complete a 25 question exam in each of the four divisions. Participants that score 90% or higher in a division (western, hunter, saddle seat, non-trotting) will receive certification. Individuals that last attended the Certification Clinic in 2017 and 2018 must attend this year to remain on the list.
