What are the Judges looking for when I show my horse?


 Want an answer to this question? Come to Courtship Ranch Sunday October 5th for a seminar/clinic with Walter de la Brosse. Walter was a student of Olympic gold jumping, 3 day bronze winner General Jumberto Mariles Garcia and Major Severyn Kulesza, Olympic 3 day silver. Walter has won 11 World and National Championships from Working Cowhorse to Western Pleasure including Pan American games 3 Day Silver. He holds licenses with USEF, ApHC, PtHA, IALHA, NSBA, AMHA and ETI and has judged 19 World/National/International.  He will cover everything from presentation and turnout, to behavior to tips on how to catch the judges eye. Select horses and riders have been chosen to demonstrate different points. This clinic is sponsored by ETI and is a must for anyone showing whether just starting out or an old hat at it.
