2016 Trainers Show And Gulf Coast Selection of Judges

release from WHTA

The Walking Horse Trainers Association would like to explain how the Judges panel will be selected for both the National Walking Horse Trainers Show and the Gulf Coast Charity Trainers Show in 2016.

Nearly everyone will be able to have an input on selecting the Judges for both shows.  The selection of Judges will be from the 2015 S.H.O.W.  Judges list and will be everyone holding a AA or AAA license.



The Walking Horse Trainers Association Board of Directors will select 5 names for each show.  The 1st name on each ballot will receive 5 points and so on until the 5th name on the list receives 1 point. 

The two Judges with the most points will be the first choice (1 for each show).  That Judge will then have the right to accept or pass.  In the case one passes it will go to the next name with the highest points until one accepts.  NO ONE JUDGE WILL BE ABLE TO JUDGE BOTH SHOWS.  Also you will only have ONE vote.  (If attending all 3 events you will only vote once).

In the event of a tie – the WHTA Board of Directors would break the tie.



The Walking Horse Trainers Association General Membership will then select 5 names for each show.  (Same rules apply as above)  

In the event of a tie – the WHTA Board of Directors would break the tie.



The 3rd and final step in the selection of Judges for the National Walking Horse Trainers Show and Gulf Coast Charity Trainers Show will be selected by the Banquet Attendees.  They too, will select 5 names and the above rules apply as well.

In the event of a tie – the WHTA Board of Directors would break the tie.
