OSU Horse Judging Team

Collegiate horse judging offers exciting and challenging opportunities for students seeking to further their knowledge of the horse industry. Judging team participation opens the door for students to become professional judges, ring stewards, college professors, educators and effective communicators.

Outside of learning to judge horses, students gain valuable tools that will be beneficial in personal growth and career success, including:

  • Development of public speaking skills
  • Interaction with horse industry professionals
  • Opportunity to travel
  • Team-building

Students enroll in two courses (two credits each). Course curriculum consists of weekly practices and learning all the major classes. Contests are a rigorous mental test and rulebook test of the student’s knowledge. Competitive judging prepares students well for the judges qualifying exam in the professional horse show industry. Team members take part in training throughout the judging season. Judging begins in the spring with an introductory course and continues into the fall semester where competition schedule increases.

The OSU Horse Judging team travels across the nation to numerous contests throughout the year. Travel, lodging and entry fees continue to be a part of the increasing costs of the horse judging program. We invite you to accompany fellow judging team members and industry colleagues in supporting the horse judging team by making an annual gift to the OSU Horse Judging Team Endowed Fund. 

Join us in making a difference in the lives of students who participate in the horse judging program!
