Final Judges Announced for the National Trainers’ Show and Gulf Coast Charity



In 2016 the WHTA will put on both the National Trainers’ Show in Shelbyville, Tenn., and the Gulf Coast Charity Horse Show in Panama City Beach, Fla. A change for 2016 is how the judges were selected. The WHTA elected to let everyone have an input on the judges for both the 2016 National Trainers’ Show and 2016 Gulf Coast Charity show.

At the WHTA Board of Directors meeting held on Friday, Dec. 4, the board voted for Dean Byard at the National Trainers’ Show and Link Webb for the Gulf Coast Charity Show.

The second judge for each show was voted on by the membership at the following general membership meeting. Garnering the most votes for the Trainers’ Show was Jamie Hankins and Scott Beaty won the vote for the Gulf Coast Charity. 

The third judge for each show was selected by a vote of everyone with a ticket at the Horse of the Year banquet on Saturday night at the Bell Buckle Banquet Hall. Allen Forman earned the most votes for the National Trainers’ Show, while Ross Campbell was selected for the Gulf Coast Charity.

Nearly everyone was able to have an input on selecting the judges for both shows.  The selection of judges was from the 2015 S.H.O.W. Judges List of all that hold AA or AAA licenses.

Five names were to be selected from each show with the first name on each ballot receiving 5 points and so on until the fifth name receiving 1 point. The two judges with the most points were the first choice (1 for each show). No one judge was able to judge both shows.
