International Equine Judges Academy (FOR PROSPECTIVE JUDGES)

Want to be a horse-show judge? Desire to know what the judges are looking for in the show ring? The International Equine Judges Academy is your solution.

Prospective and current judges, as well as collegiate judging teams and exhibitors from all disciplines in the equine industry, are invited to attend. Seminars will cover a wide array of classes, including performance and halter classes for stock, pleasure and saddle type horses, as well as ponies and miniatures.

“The Color Breed Council is extremely excited to offer this opportunity for judges of all expertise levels to either increase or develop their judging knowledge,” said Joe Grissom, CBC coordinator. “In addition to the International Equine Judges Seminar, the academy provides another avenue to make sure our industry judges are prepared and trained to be their very best in the show ring!”

Registration fees vary depending upon the seminars attended and whether you are a current judge or a student.

Starting in 2022, the International Judges Academy will no longer be held at CBC. Instead, this seminar will be held by APHA at the APHA headquarters in Ft. Worth, TX in the Spring. Once more details have been determined this page will be updated.
