In this seven week course, I will help learners improve their skills in horse judging. We will focus on conformation and disposition, balance, horse terminology, horse anatomy and physiology, understanding the "science" behind taking reasons notes correctly, writing reasons and placings as well as build our confidence in public speaking through presentation or oral reasons. Each week we will spend time on a different topic and learners will have homework that I will check the following week...
learners will build their confidence in presentation of oral reasons, what skills it takes to be a good "judge", improve their knowledge of horses and vocabulary of the horse.
learners will be given homework each week in the form of readings, memorization and practice of oral and written reasons and visuals to better prepare them for judging classes of horses. Learners who spend an average of 30 minutes a day working on horse judging will do much better at the competition.
learners will need a notebook specifically for horse judging. Flip top steiner style notebooks are ideal for taking notes for reasons. Big enough to be detailed and put a class of notes on each page.
learners will be assessed through oral and written tests. They will be placed via top scores, just like in a competition setting.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
