This event is for both Riders and others who either would like to learn more about the judging process/qualify to be able to judge events.
RIDERS' PARTICIPATION ($50)
This is a "fly on the wall experience" where the few riders gain an insider perspective of ETS judging. In this ETS Judging Clinic, the participating riders are asked to attempt the obstacles in the Judges' hands-on training. Regardless if a rider actually does that obstacle, each rider gets to 'listen-in' to the discussion of the performance and the scores immediately after each attempt. Riders are encouraged to view all judges' materials (see below). LIMITED NUMBER OF RIDERS!
This clinic is for both amateur horseman and equine professionals who wish to learn how to apply their expertise and knowledge to judging obstacles as per ETS Standards. This clinic features hands-on practice on example obstacles with real riders. Aspiring judges gain confidence through practice and feedback on their scoring from experienced ETS judges.
PREPARATION FOR THE CLINIC:
The ETS Judging Clinic consists of a short review of ETS Judging Standards with the bulk of the time spent actual practice judging on "live obstacles" with a few riders.
To prepare for the clinic, we ask that you complete the 'Classroom' portion by reviewing the Study Materials located on the Judge Certification page (JUDGE tab). You are asked to take the 'Knowledge Check' prior to the clinic.
