Why Tom Brennan?
Tom Brennan is one of the premier hunter and equitation judges in our country. As an “R” rated judge, he has judged our sport’s most prestigious competitions.

How It Works
Each “Judge My Round” video is approximately 8-10 minutes long and has the following parts:
- First Impression Commentary: Tom will watch your round straight through the first time the same way he would if he were judging and provide live commentary of what he’s observing exactly as it happens in real time. No pauses and no rewinds (because we don’t get those in the real world either). He will assess your round and you will learn what stands out about your horse and your riding during that short but critical time in the ring that the judge is deciding.
- A Closer Look: Now it is time to get into the details. Tom will start the round again at the beginning and this time, he will go through it play-by-play style. Through pausing, rewinds, and on-screen annotation, Tom will point out what you and your horse are doing well, and he will share observations that might help the next ride produce a blue ribbon.
- Ask the Judge: When you place your order and submit your video, you can submit 3 judging questions you would like Tom to answer. These could be specific questions about your horse, your tack, your position, our sport — it’s up to you! In this final section of the video, Tom will address the questions that you submitted.
