Iowa Cutting Horse Futurity 2021

Joe spent this past week in Waterloo Iowa, judging competitors at the IOWA CUTTING HORSE FUTURITY competition.

Many years ago, Joe achieved the NCHA AAAA Judge status.

Certified judges are rated A, AA, AAA or AAAA, with the latter being the highest category. These ratings depend upon the number of events an individual has judged, evaluations of the individuals judging performance at judging clinics and scores received on bi-annual tests. However, the real proving ground for any judge is in the contest arena. (excerpt from NCHA website)
