There were six apprenticing judges that were interviewed and had closed book testing and video testing on Friday. On Saturday, four members of LOC gave a rules review on halter, stock horse, and arena etiquette. LOC was honored to have Ricky Wardlaw give the balance of the seminar on performance. Ricky presented us with video and drawings of the different driving disciplines, Single Pleasure, Country Pleasure, Roadster and Classic driving were each featured. The sixteen judges in attendance were very enlightened with Ricky’s presentation, along with his enthusiasm to teach. A fun and educational afternoon was had by all! 16 Miniature Horse World WINTER 2017 This committee is proud to add that we raise our own money to present these clinics. Our committee members donate their time and accommodations for the benefit of educating our judges of the American Miniature Horse Association. Our next clinic is set for October 2018 in Denver, Colorado. And we have a question for our members.
