Judges at work

judges.jpgApHC judges must focus on small details as well as the overall performance of exhibitors. In this English Showmanship class on day one of the World Championship Appaloosa Youth Show in Jackson, Mississippi, the scoring needed to be precise and picky in order to come up with eventual placings. Exhibitors are alone “on stage” and it’s undoubtedly a bit intimidating to feel all those gazes fixed on every maneuver. ApHC youth are outstanding and quite poised. It’s pretty impressive to see how well they can perform and it’s obvious the horse-human partnership has developed to a high level.
