Cooperative Extension to Hold Horse Judging Short Courses



The North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service horse husbandry program will hold horse judging short courses Jan. 9-11 in Raleigh, N.C. and Feb. 25-27 in Monroe, N.C.

The courses are aimed at professional judges holding breed association cards; judges working toward such cards; experienced open horse show judges; youth judging team coaches; FFA instructors; and those interested in attending a Feb. 7-8 judges' certification clinic in Raleigh.

Participants will receive a judging manual and judge a variety of classes on videotape. Participants can sign up for main sessions on Saturday and Sunday, or they can sign up to attend those sessions plus a Friday session emphasizing nontrotting and saddle-seat judging.

The Raleigh course will be held at N.C. State University's extension horse husbandry office, 1400 Blue Ridge Road. The Monroe course will take place at South Piedmont Community College, 2368 Rowland Drive.

The judging courses are but two of a number of horse-related events planned for 2004. Following is a list of additional short courses and clinics to be held in 2004 for horse owners and others interested in horses. All are hosted by the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service.
