Our Story and Mission

Created and managed by professional horse show judges David J. Denniston and Tim Jedra, who bring many years of horse show experience to the site, HorseShowJudges.com is the “one stop shop” for all things related to horse show judges.

Our goal is to make the process more efficient where we connect excellent horse show judges with horse show managers. We’re changing the way horse show judges are hired and making it easier for horse show managers.

HorseShowJudges.com re-creates the way horse show judges are hired by making it easier and more efficient for horse show managers to find and hire their next judge.

The site allows managers to browse horse show judge profiles as well as advertise available jobs by simply posting the show dates and terms, then allowing judges to respond, eliminating countless hours of calling, emailing and negotiating.

HorseShowJudges.com is the ONLY universal Horse Show Judge List and a great source of continuing education for judges of all levels. Whether you’re a professional judge, a show manager, an open horse show judge, a 4-H or FFA horse show judge, an aspiring judge, or someone looking for a judge as a clinician, HorseShowJudges.com is for you!
