The Horse Judging Team develops students’ abilities to evaluate performance horses in an intercollegiate competitive setting. Students who join the Horse Judging Team should be interested in further development of their professional goals in the equine industry, as well as critical thinking, public speaking, and other practical, professional skills. To participate on the team, students will enroll in ANSC 316 – Equine Selection and Judging offered every spring semester. This course will prepare students for the intercollegiate competitions that occur across the country each year.
The team is led by head coach Sarah Schobert. She holds professional judge’s card in the following associations: APHA, NSBA, PtHA, and POAC. Since her time starting in the fall of 2020, the Texas A&M Horse Judging Team has received 11 champion or reserve national level finishes.
