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.

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!!!
