Horse Judging with 4-H

June 19th, 2012

We took the evening to work with our local 4-H Horse Judging team with the help of one of our Cowboy Up! participants and instructors.

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; 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
