Judging Contest

Region 10 Judging Contest

Region 10 hosts an annual Youth Judging Contest for 4-H/FFA, Arabian Horse Association (AHA), and Collegiate teams.

Contestants are judged both on halter and performance classes and place each horse, and then defend placings by giving their reasons to an official judge. It’s a great introduction to the Arabian horse for many, and it’s an educational activity for youth and college students that help build life skills in many areas, including:

  • Communication and public speaking
  • Decision making based on facts and observations
  • Competing with a sportsmanlike attitude
  • Teaches the ability to express ideas and critical thinking
  • Develops self confidence and teamwork skills

Our contest uses the National Horse Judging Team Coaches Association‘s judging contest rules in which team coaches verify contestant eligibility at time of entry, including verifying that no contestant holds a judges card in any division or is recognized as a judge by any breed association.
