Blaze Stripe 9 Bald Face Snip Owyhee County Horse Judging Horse Judging will teach you to compare one horse to another, and to decide which one you like better.
You can take this book with you when you go to the county judging so that you can judge and place each class.
Each horse (or rider) will have a number 1, 2, 3, or 4 so that you will remember them when you place each class.
You may want to write notes for each class to the side of this page and you can use your reasons for how you placed each class when you talk to the “reasons” judge.

Showmanship is a class where a member leads their horse into the show ring and sets the horse up so that all four feet are even.
The judge might ask you to lead your horse, stop, back up, or turn your horse around. “Showmanship” is SHOWING OFF your horse! When the class is over, you and your horse may get a nice ribbon to hang on the stall! 11 My Demonstration A demonstration is when you SHOW someone how to do something.
An illustrated talk is when you TELL someone how to do something, or tell them information about something.
All 4-H members will give a demonstration on the club level every year, and will be encouraged to give a demonstration (or illustrated talk) at the county level.

In our Owyhee County Fair, we have “Western Equitation” and “Bareback Equitation”.
In both classes, 4-H members ride their horse into the show ring and show the judge that they know how to get their horse to walk, trot, lope, stop, and back up.
There will be other members riding in the show ring at the same time.
The judge likes to see members sit up straight, smile, and try not to bounce! Western Equitation uses a saddle.
