In order to support and develop Australian Stock Horse Society Judges and Volunteers, the Australian Stock Horse Association Judges Accreditation Scheme was introduced in 2005. The scheme has developed over the years and now consists of 3 levels - Associate, Probationary and Levels 1 & 2.
A new pathway for our young Members has been added to the Judges’ Scheme in 2018. Are you aged between 18 and 21 years? Would you like to gain experience to Judge Australian Stock Horses, but haven’t had the chance to do any Judging? Associate Judges are able to Judge at Branch Shows in Led classes unaccompanied and Hack and Working classes when accompanied by at least a Level 1 Judge. This will allow you to grow in experience and confidence. To become an Associate Judge, you will need to attend a Level 1 Judges Workshop.
Keen to become a Judge but don’t think you have enough experience? Attend a Judges workshop and begin on the path to becoming a Judge by graduating as a Probationary Judge. This level of Judging allows you to Judge alongside an accredited Judge to gain confidence and experience at Branch Shows. The list above (can this link to the top of the page?) is provided to enable Probationary Judges to gain assistance from Mentor Judges, Show Committee and Branches, to obtain the necessary experience on the path to full accreditation.
Are you already an Accredited Level 1 Judge who has to do their 3-year refresher to maintain your accreditation? Attend a Level 1 Judges & Refreshers Workshop. You must complete at least one Judges Refresher Workshop in every 3 year period to remain on the Judges list. To attend a workshop please complete a Refreshers Activity Form.
