Next weekend, I'm competing in a 4-H Judging competition. For those of you that don't know what this is, it's a competition where YOU are the judge of halter and performance classes. They have an actual judge there that judges the classes. At the end, they compare your placing of the class to the judge's placing.....and so on. Halter classes are based on breeds. Performance they have different classes like, english equitation, english pleasure, western pleasure, hunter under saddle and so forth.
Now for the questions. I understand Halter classes completely. But performance, I'm kinda stuck. What exactly are they looking for in both western and english classes??????????? I know every judge is different, but can you give me some basic guidelines please?
Thanks for your help!
