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


Contests consist of l.jpg
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.


Suggestions for beginners l.jpg
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.
