AYA hosts Horse Judging Contest at National Appaloosa Show

JACKSON, Miss.—Interested in brushing up your equine judging skills? Then gather your friends and head to Jackson, Miss., as the Appaloosa Youth Association (AYA), the official youth program of the Appaloosa Horse Club, will once again host the Youth/Collegiate Horse Judging Contest at the 2009 World Championship Appaloosa Youth Show. The Horse Judging Contest will begin at 9 a.m. Friday, June 26, at the Mississippi State Fairgrounds in Jackson.

The two divisions, youth and collegiate, are open to teams and individuals. Entry fees are $25 for individuals and $75 for teams.

Members of 4-H, FFA, a regional or national AYA or any other accredited breed association are eligible and encouraged to compete in the youth division. Round up a group of three to five friends, ages 18 and under, and compete as a team or participate as an individual.

The collegiate division is open to students of properly accredited colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. Compete as an individual or in a team of four or five.

Participants will judge four halter classes and four performance classes.

Prizes will be awarded to the top ten individuals and the top four teams in both divisions for excellence in judging halter, performance, reasons and overall.

Be sure to enter by June 10 as fees increase on and after June 11 to $35 for individuals and $100 for teams. Lunch will be provided by the ApHC for participants, and the awards ceremony will take place later that afternoon. If entry forms cannot arrive at the ApHC office by June 11, please bring entry forms and payment to the National Show Office in Jackson, Mississippi.

The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) was established in 1938, with a mission of preserving, promoting and enhancing the Appaloosa breed. The ApHC has since registered more than 670,000 Appaloosas, which are known for their distinctive color, intelligence and even temperament. True to their reputation as an extremely versatile breed, Appaloosas can be found in nearly every discipline including racing, endurance riding and serving as reliable family horses. The international breed registry is headquartered in Moscow, Idaho, the heart of the Palouse region—the Appaloosa breed’s namesake and point of origin.
