  3. Review of 4-H Horse Judging Contest Horse judging is one of the most educational and popular activities of the 4-H horse project. Horse judging contests involve two actions. First, you must place each animal in a class, and second, you must be able to orally defend that placing. Horse judging helps youth to: Develop communication skills Make decisions based on facts and observations Compete with a sportsmanlike attitude Learn a skill essential for success in the horse industry Develop self confidence

  4. Contests consist of: Judging halter classes (geldings or mares) and giving reasons Judging performance classes and giving reasons. These performance classes will come from Western Pleasure, Reining, Western Riding, Hunter Under Saddle, Hunter Hack, Hunt Seat Equitation, Horsemanship or Showmanship. The 4-H contest system uses four animals in each class. Your job as a judging participant is to place the animals first, second, third, and fourth. Generally, it is best to break a class down into pairs. Divide the class down into a top pair, middle pair, and a bottom pair. However, it is generally best to make the easiest placing first. This may be the top animal, the bottom, or any of the pairs.

  5. Suggestions for Beginners Learn the correct names for all the parts of a horse, their values, and their locations. Learn the correct terms. Improper terms will weaken reasons. Learn the correct organization and techniques used in presenting oral reasons. Develop a mental picture of an ideal horse. Do this by recalling the desirable features of horses you have seen, or from pictures available from various associations. Learn the correct procedures and patterns for performance classes. Practice!!! Studying and knowing a lot about your subject will help you gain confidence.

  18. One way to help yourself in judging is to break the class down to your:Top PairMiddle PairBottom Pair Another way to help yourself in judging is to put your reasons into a“Reason Organization Chart”

  19. Reasons Organization Chart Example

  20. Reasons Organization Chart Can you put your pairs in this chart?

  21. 1 4 3 4 3 2 #1 meets all the requirements of the “Ideal” stick horse so this will obviously be my first place. #4 meets all the requirements of the “Ideal stick horse with the exception of the tail and while a tail is nice it is not necessary. #1 meets all the requirements of the “Ideal” stick horse. #4 meets all the requirements of the “Ideal stick horse with the exception of the tail. #4 meets all the requirements of the “Ideal stick horse with the exception of the tail and while a tail is nice it is not necessary, therefore #4 will be my second place. #3 meets all the requirements of the “Ideal” stick horse with the exception of the very unlevel body. The unlevel body causes the stick horse to be much more at a disadvantage than not having a tail. #4 meets all the requirements of the “Ideal stick horse with the exception of the tail. #3 meets all the requirements of the “Ideal” stick horse with the exception of the very unlevel body. #3 meets all the requirements of the “Ideal” stick horse with the exception of the very unlevel body. #3 will be my 3rd place. #2 meets very few of the “Ideal” stick horse characteristics, the worse being a neck that is unusually long and only having 2 feet. #2 is obviously my last place. #3 meets all the requirements of the “Ideal” stick horse with the exception of the very unlevel body. #2 meets very few of the “Ideal” stick horse characteristics. Reasons Organization Chart I place this class 1, 4, 3, 2 We now have our placings and our reasons!

Because #4 meets all the requirements of the “Ideal stick horse with the exception of the tail and while a tail is nice it is not necessary. Because #3 meets all the requirements of the “Ideal” stick horse with the exception of the very unlevel body. The unlevel body causes the stick horse to be much more at a disadvantage than not having a tail. Because #3 meets all the requirements of the “Ideal” stick horse with the exception of the very unlevel body. Because #2 meets very few of the “Ideal” stick horse characteristics, the worse being a neck that is unusually long and only having 2 feet. #2 will obviously be my last place.
