The Texas Tech Horse Judging team teaches students to judge the conformation and performance
of horses in Western and English disciplines. It also builds skills such as public
speaking, professional presentation and critical thinking. The judging team also gives
students the opportunity to meet industry professionals during the season.
The judging team competes in the fall semester at the All American Quarter Horse Congress,
American Quarter Horse Association World Show, National Reining Horse Futurity, National
Cutting Horse Futurity, American Paint Horse Association World Show and Arabian Nationals.
