The Jenny Seymour Young Judges Competition is held each year at the Summer Championship Show at Malvern. NPS Areas nominate young people from their region to participate.
This year the competition will have two sections:
* Section 1. Show Ponies/Show Hunter Ponies
* Section 2. Mountain & Moorland Ponies
The competition aims to find annually the top Young Judges both in the British Riding Pony and the Native Breeds. The competition provides the opportunity for young people to develop their skills in terms of judging and also present their understanding of the judging process in an interview situation.
The competition is open to all young people aged between 10 and 25 years of age.
Competitors will judge an in-hand class of four animals relevant to the section. They will be required to assess the animals standing, in walk and in trot. Following the judging of the ponies each competitor will be interviewed individually by one of the judges in a drawn order; interviews will be conducted indoors.
There will then be a supper for all participants and the presentation of awards.
If you would like to participate in this prestigious competition please contact your local NPS Area.
