HorseIQ library expands to include hunt-seat equitation videos

Communication and harmony between horse and rider are key elements to success in hunt-seat equitation. Now, thanks to APHA’s HorseIQ video learning tool, take your understanding of this exhibitor-favorite class to a whole new level with unique learning tools, all from the comfort of your own home or mobile device.

New to the HorseIQ Library are hunt-seat equitation pattern videos from the 2017 APHA World Championship Show. Use these runs to enhance your understanding of the class judging priorities and scoring system, practice judging and scoring runs, and to understand the nuances that compile to create a winning performance. In addition to the entire slate of class performances from the 2017 Classic Amateur Hunt-Seat Equitation class, find links to a blank scorecard, the pattern description and judges’ official scorecards.

“The library is an incredibly valuable resource that anyone can use to further develop their skill and knowledge of judging multiple different disciplines. We will continue to load more events into the library in the future,” APHA Director of Judges, Shows & Education David Dellin said.

Log in or subscribe to HorseIQ to access the new library of resources. Check back in future weeks as additional classes and resources are added to the library.

 An innovative online education platform, HorseIQ gives exhibitors an interactive look at the rules and judging standards of their favorite classes. In addition to reining, modules on Western pleasure, trail, horsemanship, halter and ranch riding are currently available.
