Judge’s training/information session

A judge’s training day will be held on Saturday 5th of March in Co. Kildare to train up judges currently on judging panels such as IPS, ISA, etc so that they can be added to the SSAI’s judging panel. If a show runs into difficulty with finding a side saddle ride judge they will then have a wider selection of judges who will be able to step in to judge a side saddle class and know exactly what to look for in terms of rider ability, turn out, tack, the differences between different side saddle classes, the individual show, and all the small details which are so important. There will also be a question and answer session and a mounted display with the trainer explaining all the finer details of the rules and what to look for. There will be a small fee and attendees will be given an information pack and refreshments. Further information from Ciara O’Connell 0872266321.
