This week we had the pleasure of talking with David Dellin, Sr. Director of Judges, Shows, and Education for the American Paint Horse Association. We take a deep dive into the subject of judging, including the stringent process of becoming a carded judge and ways the judging of our horse shows can be tweaked or improved. We also discuss unique platforms offered by APHA for the education of its judges and exhibitors, and other happenings going on at APHA.
