the Cascade Youth Benefit Show

Participants will have to judge 4 classes and give one oral presentation regarding
reasoning to their placings. The top 4 highest scores will move forward to the 2018 Youth
Judging Team.

Once you qualify to be on the judging team it is required that you must do the following:

● Attend all Judging Team practices
● Volunteer at one local show and the regional championship show. We encourage the local show to be the Cascade Youth Benefit show and the Regional show can either be the Sport Horse Show or the Main Ring show. Please ensure to work these detailsout with the youth director.

● Attend all local youth meetings
