On October 16 The Wellington FFA Chapter went to Kingman, Kansas to compete in the South Central District Horse Judging Career Development Event.  The students learned about how to judge horses based on their confirmation, and also based on how they perform being ridden in various performance events in Agriculture Education classes.  They took the skills they learned and applied them in a real world setting by judging six classes of horses and giving oral reasons. (Oral reasons are a short explanation of why they placed the horses the way they did).
