PARTNERS FOR THE RIDE

Licensed Officials

Are you ready to give back to the sport you love in a way that will also make you a better, more informed competitor? Then you might want to consider becoming a licensed official or auditing one of the sessions to become a more informed competitor or fan in the stands. Whether a professional, owner, breeder or competitor attending the ASHBA Judges Clinics is an excellent way to increase your involvement and knowledge. If you are interested in starting the process to becoming a licensed judge or just increasing your understanding the ASHBA’s January 2022 Judges Clinic is the place to start!

 To see the requirements to become a judge, or to view the requirements for promotion to ‘R’, please see the Become Licensed page on the USEF website. 

Do you have a question about licensed officials? Please email loinquiry@usef.org.
