Meet your Judge...


Meet your Judge for April 1st!


Greetings,  I'm Tricia Mozingo and I will be your judge for April 1st.  I am a alumni of Virginia 4H and participated in the horse program, completing the Horse Masters Program.





   Over the years I have competed in Hunter pleasure, Western Pleasure, and Ranch Horse. For the past few years I have competed with my Miniature Horse in open shows, pleasure driving shows, and Arena Driving Trials.  I have recently been working with an Arabian providing foundation work for her to begin her show career. I have been judging for 10 years and have certifications in the Open Horse Shows Association, Ponies of The Americas Club, and I have completed the North Carolina State University Open Horse Show Judges Certification Course. I have judged up and down the east coast at a variety of shows. I look forward to kicking off the show season with the Silver Star Farm Show Series and seeing all of the exhibitors new and old!
