General Information

All short courses and clinics are offered as an educational service of the Extension Horse Husbandry Section, North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service, in cooperation with the Animal Science Department at North Carolina State University. Additional event sponsors and contacts are listed for specific short courses and clinics where appropriate. Please make your inquiries for an event to the coordinator listed under the specific short course or clinic.

The North Carolina State University Equine Short Courses were established in 1986 with the first annual Open Horse Show Judges’ Certification Clinic. The Short Course and Clinic Series has gained national and international recognition and will provide a variety of educational information events.

Currently, NCSU offers two Horse Judging related courses each fall:
Introductory Horse Judging Short Course
Open Horse Show Judges’ Certification Clinic


Separate pre-registration forms and checks are required for each course or event. The registration fee must accompany the registration form. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come basis prior to the advertised deadline date. Registrations will not be processed without the accompanying course fee payable in separate checks. Combined checks and/or accompanying registration forms will be returned for separate processing. Those registrations received after a deadline will be assessed a late fee. Time permitting, an e-mail notice or a letter of acceptance will be mailed to participants if registration is received two weeks prior to the course for all courses except the Youth Judging Team Training Clinic.
