"A Judge's Perspective": Clinic with Laurie Petkus @ Paso Robles | California | United States

This is a stock horse clinic to educate competitors as to the perspective of the judge’s viewpoint and how this relates to the scoring process. This clinic will begin with a discussion of what the judge observes as you enter the arena; guiding principles of the judge; the intricacies of the points and penalties associated with your performance. As if in a show ring event, participants will perform a reining pattern and then work the mechanical cow. After each rider, the scores will be posted and the judge’s interpretation and critique is offered. These observations will reflect your horse’s temperament and disposition and offer suggestions for you to unify and improve your partnership with your horse. After all participants have had an individual session, there will be a question and comment period. This will be followed by a short break and a second go-round without any breaks between riders.

  • Limited to 10 participants
  • Price to Attend: $75 (Non-club members add an additional $20 for the day)
  • Open to all levels of riders
  • Auditors welcome
