We have had a couple of girls interested in the Young Judges competition but have been unable to get a full team, therefore we hope to have a team for next year, if you are interested please contact me. Teams are of 3 members to have attained their 14th but not their 21st birthday before the 1st January in the current year, or individuals to have attained their 18th and not their 24th birthday before 1st January in the current year. We will put together some training sessions/tuition/yard visits etc to prepare a team for the competition for next year. The Young Judges competition is a great stepping stone for any young person looking to becoming a judge within the BSPS but is also a great opportunity to learn how classes are judged, correct conformation and gain a greater understanding of the workings of the marks system and to understand different judge’s points of view. It is a great learning experience but also enjoyable to do and be part of a team.
