Horse Judging Team Does Well In First Competition

October 31, 2006

The SIUC Horse Judging Team was formed in August, 2006 after a group of student approached Dr. Gary Minish, Dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences, and persuaded him to put together the team. Stephanie Speiser, an Animal Science Instructor, took on the challenge of putting together the eight-member team. Upon attending its first competition in Oklahoma City in mid-October, the group brought back 19 shiny new ribbons for their accomplishments. During the competition, students were asked to evaluate such things as physical attributes and riding styles. To explain their assessments, students had to complete presentations regarding their evaluations. Additional information about their success can be found in the following press release.
