2016 Inspection Tour is being scheduled for August/September 2016
Each horse will get inspected in hand and at liberty. Please see our handout on How to Prepare Your Horse for Inspection.
The judge will score:
- Movement (three gaits)
- Overall Impression
- and will fill out a score sheet and will explain the results with the owner at the end of the inspection.
The best horses will get ribbons at each Inspection site and at the end of the entire tour. We will calculate the Champions and will send ribbons, certificates and something special for the Grand Champion of the Inspection Tour.
