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.

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.
