I have been a Horse Show Judge for 23 years. I hold cards with the United States Equestrian Federation in the Morgan & Friesian Horse Divisions, the American Miniature Horse Registry/ American Shetland Pony Club/ American Show Pony Registry, the Gypsy Vanner Horse Society, the Gypsy Horse Registry of America, Michigan 4-H, the Pony of the Americas Club, and I also judge all breeds of Draft Horses and Ponies. In the near future, I would also like to obtain a judges card with U.S.E.F. in the Equitation Division. I own and show Morgan Horses and Registered American Draft Ponies. My family has previously owned Arabian Horses, Shetland Ponies, Percheron Draft Horses, a Quarter Horse/Morgan Cross and a Tennessee Walking Horse. I hold World Titles and Top Ten. Honors in Equitation, Showmanship, Driving, In-Hand, and Pleasure Divisions.

I also judge state, local and national fairs, regional shows, national and world shows, futurities, and schooling shows.
