SHOW Forms Judging Panel



The SHOW HIO recently eliminated its Director of Judges position and will replace that position with a Judging Panel.  The panel was formed by SHOW President Dr. Stephen L. Mullins and will hold its first meeting in mid-October in conjunction with the Celebration Fall Classic.

Earlier SHOW announced that the panel would be made up of owner representation, trainer representation and independent representation.  Agreeing to serve on the initial panel were owner representatives Sheryl Crawford, Deborah Williams and Richard Garnes.  Steve Aymett and Billy Young will serve as the trainer representatives.  Rounding out the panel will be at large representatives Carol Smithson, Connie Waldo and Tommy Hall.

Also serving on the panel will be Dr. Mullins and SHOW DQP Coordinator Tony Edwards.  Initially, there will be five voting members, two of which will always be Mullins and Edwards.  Completing the five voting members will be one owner, trainer and at-large representative.

The panel members have agreed to serve at no expense to the SHOW HIO and will be responsible for the overall direction of the SHOW judging program.  The judging initiatives, including recruitment of new judges and the development of existing judges will fall under the direction of this panel.  Also, this panel will determine any infractions that occur and recommend the appropriate penalties for those infractions.  All disciplinary action will be administered by the SHOW HIO.
