Only one judge is required for competitions outside of the RHAA National Finals. National Finals Judges will sit on the same side of the arena so that they may all have a similar view of the run that they are judging. Judges’ name must be submitted to the RHAA at least two weeks prior to the show. Only RHAA certified, card carrying judges will be allowed to be used at all competitions. Judges must hold a current RHAA membership and must have attended at least one RHAA Judge’s seminar within the previous two years as required by RHAA. Judges must be provided with a current copy of the rules and RHAA judge’s card at the time of competition and be familiar with the judging criteria. Judges must be provided a whistle or a flag in the event a run must be halted to allow for new cattle. Judges must use a uniform score sheet supplied by the RHAA. All score sheets must be forwarded to RHAA after the competition.
