What is it?
In the Horse Evaluation CDE, students evaluate and rank horses based on breed characteristics, conformation and performance. As a team, students cooperatively solve problems related to equine selection, management, nutrition and production.
A team may consist of three or four members. The top three scores will be used to determine the official team. If a school only has three members, they are the official team. These same three individuals will be used in selecting sub-contest, team winners. All contestants may compete for individual awards.
