On a previous show, I talked to Patti Carter, Director of Judges for the AQHA. Today, I share an interview with Bill Enk, Director of Judges for the NRCHA. A lifelong horseman at 77, Bill has a wealth of experience in the horse show world. He’s judged horses almost all his life. He’s been a judge at the AQHA World Show many times and he judged the Road to the Horse. Even if you don’t show, what Bill has to say about horsemanship is important to anyone who rides.
It takes a lot of work and dedication to become and maintain a judges' certificate. It's somewhat of a thankless job. I think of all the times I came out of a competition. Sometimes I did well, sometimes not so good. At these times, the horse show judge wasn't always my favorite person. Bill Enk has been judging horses and riders for over 5 decades. You must be pretty good at judging to stay around that long. And, think of all the things he's seen in the show ring. Bill is a wealth of knowledge and experience. He has a lot to share and gives generously of his time and expertise.
We want you to be a part of the show. Tell us about your horse. Share your challenges, triumphs, or just everyday items that make horse ownership unique. Create an audio file using the memo app on your phone. Or contact me and we'll set up a time to talk on Skype or phone. Perhaps what you have to share can help someone in THEIR horse journey.
You are an enormous part of why we do a podcast. We really love getting your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions for the show. Email us at John@WhoaPodcast.com
