FOSH is the only international organization dedicated to the promotion of the sound-gaited horse emotionally, mentally, and physically.

We educate our members on how to treat, care for, and train gaited horses across the U.S. and Canada.

IJA Rule Book — Keeping the Standards High for IJA Judges

The IJA Rule Book is more than just a guideline for IJA judges hired by horse show managers. This book is also expected to be the standard by which gaited horses, which will be specified in this rule book, competing in a variety of disciplines and exhibiting a variety of gaits, must be judged. Please check out the following resource links below to read FOSH’s rules by section. You can also visit our IJA Judging Program page to learn more about IJA judges.
