Join APHA and be the Judge with their new IQ Video Learning Platform

Be the judge with APHA’s Horse IQ video learning platform

Screen_Shot_2016-09-01_at_2.00.06_PMIn a groundbreaking move, APHA has released an innovative new online exhibitor education platform called Horse IQ. The first of its kind, Horse IQ brings exhibitors up to speed with current rules and judging standards in a dynamic, easy-to-access and affordable model.

Horse IQ puts the potential for improvement at your fingertips. Each module focuses on one discipline; watch video examples with explanations of penalties and maneuver scores, judge a class online with “reasons” by an official judge, and put your skills to the test by judging numerous runs and comparing your scores to official APHA World Show judges’ scorecards. Horse IQ viewers receive the same information taught to carded judges at their annual educational seminars.

Trail and Western horsemanship modules are available now on Horse IQ—many more classes are coming soon.

Screen_Shot_2016-08-30_at_6.58.05_PMAPHA Director of Judges David Dellin took the lead on making Horse IQ a reality, working with teams of expert horsemen to curate the content. APHA judges Carly Veldman Parks and John Briggs, along with Markel APHA Professional Horsemen Robin Frid and Bruce Walquist, worked with David to create the trail and horsemanship modules.

Dellin is excited about the potential of Horse IQ to bridge the gap between judging standards and exhibitor knowledge.

“This is a one of a kind delivery system for anyone wanting to become a better exhibitor or judge,” he said. “We are starting with trail and horsemanship, with many more disciplines to come as soon as we can finish producing them. I am very excited to be able to have this product for all parties interested in showing horses.”

Knowledge is Power!

Designed for anyone who wants to learn more about how horse show classes are judged and how to improve their own performances based on judging standards, Horse IQ is perfect for exhibitors of all ages, trainers, parents, judges, competitive horse judging teams and more.

Joining Horse IQ is easy and gives you on-demand access to hundreds of video clips and judging criteria at the click of a button. Subscription fees start at $6.99 per month for APHA members or $9.99 per month for non-members. Join now at
