Horse Judging

Hey Guys! I'm entering in my local county fair in a horse judging class, and I thought that I could use some practice. So basically there are 4 horses, and I pick places 1-4 based on their conformation. So I'll start with a category:

Quarter Horse geldings

So, does anyone have a breed/gender stated above? If you do, I could use the practice in preparing for the competition! Just post below (I only need 4 horses, then I'll judge,place, and move onto the next breed/gender).

-Remember, this is just for practice, not some "official thing"

-Post a picture of your horse from a side view.

If anyone has suggestions for the next category, corrections to my placings, or helpful hints for my competition, feel free to post that,too!Thanks!!!

this sounds neat. Of course I've never owned a Quarter Horse Gelding so I'm not much help.

Good luck! DD was on her FFA chapter's horse judging team and I participated many moons ago as a 4-Her myself. I can't remember at the moment which one, but I know one of the magazines she gets has a judging/placing thing every month with three or four horses that are evaluated and placed by that month's expert and there reasons are explained in detail.....will have to check which one it is whrn I get home or maybe someone here knows what it is......might help you study up.

Practical Horseman has a confirmation clinic in it every month, three horses are judged based on suitability for a certain discipline. Other than Practical Horseman, I'm not sure what other magazine does it.

Horse & Rider usually has a comformation clinic every month too. Although, sometimes I don't agree with their placings, it's still good practice and they have detailed descriptions of why they placed the horses they way they did.

Since nobody's posted any pics yet... here are a few! I know that one of them is a mare, but honestly I think that there is not a significant difference in the way that mares and geldings are conformed. JMO.
1) Goose-- QH x Draft of some sort.
Doodles!! Goose! Race Day prepping 034.jpg

2) Doodles-- QH mare. (The most amazing horse in the whole world!!! lol) Sorry, the angle of that pic is kind of weird...

3) Buzz-- QH gelding with TONS of Thoroughbred breeding. This was from the first day that I got him. he looks MUCH better now.
PATRON!! 010.jpg

I thought I had more conformation pictures than that!! I'll have to get more!!

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.
