Submitted by Deryl E Waldren

Current horse judges need to re-certify every few years. In addition, horse enthusiasts often want to get certified so they can judge 4-H and open class horse shows. Join us on Friday, April 12th for a 4-H and open horse judges’ certification clinic co-sponsored by the Colby Community College Equestrian program, K-State Research and Extension and Northwest Area 4-H. The training runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Colby Community College Farm, 2002 County Road 23, Colby, KS 67701.

Dr. Teresa Douthit, Associate Professor in Animal Nutrition, Department of Animal Sciences, KSU, will be the lead trainer. The training will include two halter classes and four performance classes.

Cost of the certification is $45 that includes lunch, snack and training materials. There will no refunds except in the event that the training is cancelled due to low numbers. All participants must remain for the entire training in order to be certified. Registrations are on-line due by April 1st by visiting: http://www.colbycc.edu/judge-clinic.
