Who says you can’t get an early jump on your horse’s performance career? Yearling in-hand trail is designed to cultivate skills in young horses that translate to future under-saddle ambitions in the same event.
New to the HorseIQ Library are yearling in-hand trail videos from the 2017 APHA World Championship Show. Use these videos to improve your understanding of the class judging priorities and scoring system, to practice judging and scoring each run, and to understand the nuances that compile to create a winning performance.
In addition to these videos, you will find links to view the judges’ scorecards from the World Show event, providing you a way to compare your scores to how the judges scored the class.
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.
HorseIQ is APHA’s innovative online learning platform, designed to help judges and exhibitors alike understand APHA class rules and brush up on their skills. APHA members receive discounted access to this program—to get started, sign up for HorseIQ at horseiq.com.
