Judging Accreditation for Provincial Hunter/Jumper/Hack/Equitation Judge Status

The SHF Officials Committee is pleased to announce the reintroduction of provincial judging accreditation for Provincial Hunter/Jumper/Hack/Equitation Judge status. To view the application and requirements to seek SHF Provincial Hunter/Jumper/Hack/Equitation Judge status click here.

The SHF will be hosting an SHF Hunter/Jumper judge clinic on September 26-27, 2020 at Bridlewood Farms (white City) and lead by EC and SHF Senior Hunter/Jumper Judge Connie Dorsch. Attending this clinic would be the first step in applying for your provincial Hunter/Jumper judging status.  This clinic is also open to auditors (those not seeking Judges status) such as coaches, trainers and competitors who would like to grow their own personal knowledge about how Hunter/Jumper disciplines are judged. To register for this judge training event click here.

Additional ideas for 2020 MAP expenditures

The SHF Board of Directors recognizes that many of the regularly scheduled events (such as clinics and shows) may not be able to be held in 2020 because of the restrictions imposed by the Saskatchewan Health Authority to combat the spread of COVID-19.
