SIU School of Agricultural Sciences would like to thank the 39 schools and 190 students that participated in the Horse Judging CDE today.  Congratulations to the first place Varsity Team- Unity and  Junior Varsity Division winner – Mt Vernon.  The attached report contains the top 10 teams (Varsity and JV) and top 20 individual scores (Varsity and JV).  Scores can be checked on

In addition, we would like to say thank you to everyone who helped us put this event together.  Many hours of  extra effort and zoom meetings were expended. In addition, we would like to say a special thank you to Stephanie Speiser for her hard work in putting this contest together each year since 1997, and Samantha Wuest, the SIU Equine Center Manager, for her help in coordination and working with the horses.  Their hard work is greatly appreciated.  A very big Thank you to SIU's Center for Teaching Excellence for doing all the video production.  Thank you to Susan Graham and Rachel Wright for the efforts in planning, conducting and scoring the event.  It was truly a team effort.

Last but not least – thank you to all of our FFA members and their teachers for participating in our event.  Our goal was not just to provide a competitive event but also create educational materials that might be used for many years to come.  After we add the reasons to our video, we intend to provide a link to the video from this event to every school in Illinois as an educational resource free of charge.
