Horse Judges Certification
At the Minnesota 4-H horse judges seminar every spring, new people can apply to become certified or re-certified as a 4-H horse judge.

The seminar is also open to 4-H’ers, 4-H adult volunteer leaders, parents, etc. The spectator fee is $10.00, payable at the door.

How to find a judge for your Horse Project event
There is a new format to the judges list. Judges have been asked to rate their comfort level on several horse show categories and their responses are recorded in the directory. The level refers to the number of years they have held their judges card and the number of 4-H qualifying shows they have judged. Read the How to use judges directory guide for more information on this rating system.
