Well l finally decided to embark on some judges training and have taken the opportunity to do this with High Horse Showing Society which commenced with an assessment day today. A brilliant society which was set up by competitors, for competitors who offer fun affordable shows with panal judges who have a wealth of expertise and who are willing to share their knowledge. High Horse Showing Society has it’s own judging panel and has held two yearly judges conferences. Starting from the judges conference , High Horse Showing Society runs a highly successfull judges, stewards and junior judges training scheme, everyone mentored and is able to shadow one of the panel judges at shows offering judges training practical days with hands on demos from some of the gold panel judges. Below was our first day of assessment. I now have a few probationary judging appointments with a final assessment in hopefully October time.
