The American Quarter Horse, American Paint Horse and National Snaffle Bit associations will sponsor the 2013 Inaugural Industry Show Summit.

Trainers, professional horsemen, judges, stewards and exhibitors are invited to the Inaugural Industry Show Summit sponsored by AQHA, APHA and NSBA on December 8, 2013, at the Dallas/Fort Worth Grand Sheraton in Irving, Texas.

AQHA, APHA and NSBA are teaming up to help strengthen the integrity of competition by bringing together many of the industry’s leading judges, trainers and industry professionals. The summit will explore the judging system and education process, class rules and how they are interpreted. The summit will provide ways to become more consistent through video runs and reviews of classes as well as the score deviations and the scoring system. Humane training at events will also be discussed.

Participants will attend 45-minute sessions with panel-led discussions covering western pleasure, hunter under saddle, horsemanship, hunt seat equitation, western riding and trail. These discussions will be followed by 30-minute open dialogue and question and answer sessions.

Participants will be able to ask questions and provide input in an open, dialogue-friendly setting.

This first-of-its-kind summit and symposium is designed to be positive, friendly and open, with the goal of helping exhibitors at a variety of levels.
