Do you want to learn how to be a judge and don't know where to start?
Are you an apprentice judge or on a collegiate judging team?
Do you want to learn to scribe?
Or do you just want to learn what the judge is looking for to be more successful in the show ring?
If you answered yes to any of the above then the International Equine Judges Academy might be just what you need!
Do you have some experience as a judge and now want to apply to be an IBHA carded judge?
You must apply to IBHA first by December 31st, then be invited to the Seminar.
The next International Equine Judges Seminar and Applicant Testing Session will be held in January 2022.
All IBHA Judges Applicants must attend the International Equine Seminar to complete the applicant process and acquire IBHA certification. All IBHA Approved Judges must attend the seminar once every three years to maintain their judge's status. The exception to this requirement is an AQHA approved judge that is not required to attend the seminar for any other breed and submits in writing to the IBHA office the date of AQHA seminar attended within the previous two years.
