Carded Judge AMHA
Getting to Know Syndi .....
Hello everyone my name is Syndi Kanzler. I am not only a judge and trainer, I am a horse enthusiast. My life has revolved around horses since I was a child. I spent several years in 4H and attended as many open shows as my mother would allow. I lived and breathed horses. My first horse was a Quarter Horse mare that I rode everyday and spent hours with a trainer learning everything I could about equitation and horse training, conformation and showmanship.
In 1990 I purchased a registered Appaloosa and began my own career in training and showing. I spent the next five years apprenticing and attending clinics under several well known horsemen, evolving and growing with these experiences, taking what I learned and honing it into a program that worked well for me. I attained much success with my horses and those of my clients. I was introduced to the miniature horse industry in 1996. It soon became apparent I could train and show these small equine with the same expertise I had with their larger counterpart. After enjoying several years of success with my own horses I opened my training facility in 2000. Since that time I have been honored and blessed to show some outstanding horses to their National, World and Congress Titles. During this time I spent months researching and learning about equine judging. Spending time talking with carded judges and attending clinics for several disciplines. In 2007 I applied for and received my judges card in AMHR/ASPC/Classic/Modern. In 2009 I applied and received my card with AMHA. I have judged several shows since that time and enjoy every aspect of judging. The youth and amateur are the lifeblood of the industry, I take special interest in making sure the youth and amateurs enjoy their time in the arena. I offer pointers and insight into what the judge is looking for and how they might increase their chance at being seen and present their horse in a way that catches the judges eye. I feel I have a lot to offer to the equine industry, both in knowledge and experience. My background is based in Halter and Performance. With the knowledge that "Form to Function" is one of the most important elements in equine performance. I do several clinics a year around the Pacific Northwest, Canada, Idaho and Oregon. My specialty is halter and driving, with an emphasis on choosing the right horse, safely starting a horse in harness, condition and presentation. My plan is to continue training and presenting these beautiful animals. I also intend on continuing my education in this industry and hopefully pass on my experience to others. I would love the opportunity to judge a show in your area. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information and reasonable rates.
