Having the title “APHA Clinician” will allow these APHA Judges and Professional Horsemen to better serve the members and potential members of our organization.  You will be able to use any of the judges that are also clinicians for APHA clinics held in conjunction with APHA shows (See Rule SC-100.A.1.).  In addition, these professional have learned some of the most effective teaching techniques used by teaching professionals around the world.  Please contact one of these clinicians for any of your educational needs.
