Ronald Bartholomew Judging

Ronald Bartholomew has always had the passion of horses since a young child. He grew up in the equine industry with parents that worked closely in the draft horse business, however he decided to pursue a slightly different equine career. As a junior rider he first stepped in the Hunter/Jumper arenas with success. While the thrill of jumping and hunter ponies will always be close to his heart, he then soon then ventured into the Arabian division which exposed him to many other disciplines and breeds. Ronald has been working on his judging career since 2008 judging numerous local horse shows, but actively started pursuing his national judging licenses in 2012. Growing up and being exposed to different breeds/disciplines as a professional, Ronald has been able to become a well-rounded horseman. Ronald strives to provide a strong ethical code and conduct while judging horse shows throughout North America. He feels that all competitors deserve an educated and fair decision so exhibitors have a positive experience while showing their equines. Ronnie is confident that he can provide your organization with a qualified judging opinion in the upcoming show season.
