The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension is pleased to announce its 2017 Horse Judging School, 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., April 22, 2017, at the UNL Animal Science Complex, on East Campus.

This horse show judges school is a must for current judges, aspiring judges, judging team coaches, and youth. UNL Extension Equine Specialist Kathy Anderson said the judges school is also perfect for exhibitors because it is the best way to learn how one is being judged, so exhibitors can do a better job when in the arena.

The Nebraska 4-H Horse Show Judging Certification test will be offered at no additional cost for those needing to be re-certified, or desiring to become new 4-H Horse judges.

A great addition to this year’s school is not only will there will be classroom sessions, but there will be live classes in the arena to practice. Horsemanship, trail, ranch riding, halter, and how to conduct oral reasons the collegiate way will be the focus of this year’s school.

Speakers include:

Kathy Anderson, UNL Extension Equine Specialist

Lena Luck, UNL Extension Equine Specialist for youth

Rebecca Gunderson, UNL equine graduate student

The cost per person is $30 for youth, ages 10 -18 years old, and $40 for adults, ages 19 years and older.
