MFTHBA Judges Training Set For Early October–Postponed

**Note:  This event has been postponed until spring.  More information will be shared as soon as it becomes available.


The MFTHBA Judges Education Committee has scheduled a judges training clinic for early October.  Attendance will assist potential judges in the process of becoming an MFTHBA carded judge.  In order to apply for a judge’s license, an applicant must meet the following requirements:

  • Current member in good standing of MFTHBA;
  • Age 18 or older;
  • Acceptably judge a group of horses, on video and/or live;
  • Complete the written rules evaluation as revised to accurately reflect rule changes and objectively measure an applicant’s knowledge of the MFTHBA’s rules and standards, answering 85% or more of the questions correctly;
  • Pay a $25 application fee.

Upon meeting the above requirements, a Judge Apprentice card will be issued. An apprentice must judge a minimum of 3 MFTHBA-approved shows under the supervision of MFTHBA carded judges with a minimum of 6 classes. The apprentice must complete this requirement in no more than 36 months. Once an applicant successfully completes all the requirements, the apprentice must be recommended by the MFTHBA carded judges under whom the applicant apprenticed to the MFTHBA Board of Directors for final approval.

This year’s Judges Clinic will be held at Alias Smith and Jones Ranch in Rogersville, Missouri on October 5, 2019.  It will begin at 9:30 a.m.

Those that already hold their judges’ cards or exhibitors interested in participating in this educational opportunity are also invited to attend.  There will be a $25 fee for all attendees.  This fee will cover the application fee for those wishing to move forward with obtaining their card.  The fee may be pre-paid to the MFTHBA office.
