As a starting point for the Judge’s Education page the JOC has interviewed a number of internationally recognised judges from overseas on their personal experiences when judging. In particular the international judges have been asked to tailor their advice to new or probationary Australian judges. The interviews provide an insight into some of the different pressures judges may face judging domestically and internationally, ethical issues and considerations, trends in the industry and some common sense tips.
The JOC will also continue to roll out a broader range of interviews with internationally recognised judges on issues such as Type, Movement and Conformation. Other specialists such as riding and performance horse judges will also be interviewed on the Judge’s Education page. The JOC is aiming to build up a wide range of interviews to help all levels of judges. We would encourage all levels of judges to take the time to watch them.
