NFHR Annual Meeting

by Lori Albrough

Mathematical Accuracy of the NFHR Scoring SystemHere I am at the Norwegian Fjord Horse Registry’s annual meeting held in Norco, CA.

I was there to present a talk entitled “Mathematical Accuracy of the NFHR Evaluation Scoring System”.

The subject of precision versus accuracy – in the mathematical sense of the terms – is a hugely important one that is becoming widely recognized in the judging of horse sports. This recognition is happening at all levels, right up to International Championships and Olympics.

My challenge was to present the math in a way that every layman could understand. Thanks to everyone who told me I succeeded! I definitely had a blast doing it. I was harkened back to my University days as a TA for Engineering Math.

Being in sunny California for four days in February, and connecting with Fjord friends both old and new, made for a lovely winter interlude.

    Hi Pamela, the NFHR annual meeting is held in a different location throughout the US each year. The one in 2015 was in February in Norco, CA. Contact the NFHR for details on when and where the next meeting will be. It’s usually in the early part of the year, either January, February or March.

    Hi Lori, this talk sounds very good and interesting.
    Even if the NFHR evaluation Scoring System is probably quite different than the European one, I would be very intereste in having a resume or anyting else regarding your presentation.
    If it may be possible for you to send me something I would be very happy. Looking forward to hearing from you soon, kind regards, Laurence
