Meet Your Judges
JAMES SMITH UK
I began my journey with horses at the age of eight at Allstone riding centre. Together with my sister Samantha we had a great start riding all sorts of ponies which began my love of horses. I went on to ride with Horse Rangers Royal Windsor troop in my teenage years learning about all aspects of horsemanship as well as riding in different disciplines.
When I was 25 in the winter of 2000, I had the opportunity for a short while to live and train in a small village called Chipiona, a few miles from Jerez in Andalusia, Spain. I had an introduction to Doma Vaquera and tuition in Doma Classica. After making some new friends who were training at the Royal School of Equestrian art in Jerez, I had the opportunity to visit some amazing studs with the most noble and beautiful horses I have ever seen, including the great Invasor!
Together with my partner Emma Thomas we were hooked on the Pura Raza Espanola Horse.
On our return to the UK our journey with the PRE horses grew.
Over the 21 years working with the PRE horse I have enjoyed breeding, showing and dressage competition, producing many National Champions in the UK as well as making the journey to compete at Sicab, in Seville Spain. I have trained and competed PRE horses at Grand Prix level in dressage. And I have also been the annual Champion handler/presenter twice at our National show.
I have always had an interest in the history of the PRE from my first introduction to them in Jerez and Bocado bloodlines to the horses we see competing at Sicab today.
We currently have a 20 box yard in Surrey UK, and continue to produce young and old horses alike most notably Aragorn de Esperanza a PRE 6yr old we bred currently competing in the Copa de Ancce FEI classes.
Through working with many PRE horses over the years my appreciation for the breed has grown, for its versatility, beauty, nobleness, temperament and the thing i am most grateful for, being best teacher.
NAOMI VANCE-WEBB UK/Portugal
I have owned horses, or been involved with them for most of my life. My first Iberian (PRE) was Diverti Mundo, a quirky 9 year old gelding that I bought in about 1988/89 and I was hooked on the PRE from that moment on. He taught me a lot, and we did everything together including horseball, dressage, quadrille displays and lovely hacking on the New Forest, usually in piaffe or passage!
Around 1999/2000 I wanted to start breeding so purchased some youngsters from Antonio Diosdado Galan (one of the founders of the Royal School in Jerez). These 3 original horses all became UK National Show Champions, FAROL XXIX, NAPOLITANA XVII and MOLINERA XXXV. I’ve been breeding PRE’s since then on a small scale, with the aim always being to produce and breed a horse that could win in the show ring, AND do a job.
Over the 20 years of our showing history, my stud farm won more National Championship titles than any other in the history of the UK, including several with my own homebred youngsters. We were the first to bring the coveted Calificado status horses into the UK and at one point our stud boasted a total of 4. All this has been achieved owning no more than 10-20 horses at any one time, and with a very careful selection and breeding programme.
Having spent several years as a Director of BAPSH Limited (2010 - 2013 approx), I then established GBPRE as the affiliated ANCCE PRE Association for all competitions and Calificado gradings in the UK at the end of 2015/early 2016, with help from my colleague and friend, Karen Manzi and my other co-directors, and this continues to go from strength to strength. GBPRE hosted the first ever Calificado Tribunal (TRC) in the UK in 2019 which was very well attended and with excellent results for our UK bred horses.

MRS SHARYN McKELL NSW
My name is Sharyn McKell and I have been breeding and showing Australian Stock Horses for over 20 years under the prefix “Jarendan”. I have bred and shown numerous State and Royal Champions in both led and ridden breed classes and have successfully shown in the open Hack and Hunter rings competing at Horse of the Year and Grand Nationals. I sit on a number of society panels and have judged at State and National level across numerous breeds including Miniature Horses and Ponies right through to Clydesdales. I love nothing more than to see an expressive saddle horse that is happy in its work with even flowing paces. look forward to seeing all your workouts and am excited that I have been asked to judge the 2022 AHAA Virtual National Show

MRS DEBBIE DEKKER QLD
I have had the privilege of having horses all my life, but when the Andalusian horse arrived in Australia, I was instantly enthralled, and have been ever since. I bred my first Andy in 1976 and though only a small stud, have bred and shown many State and National champions. I have competed and judged in a broad range of equestrian activities from sporting, show jumping and eventing, to hacking, harness, dipped my toe in the water of western, and always my favourite, classical dressage. I also was involved in horse industry administration and the broader equestrian community liaising with government agencies. I have been blessed with many amazing horses with a “can do” attitude and an intelligence and grace that has been cherished. I have loved breeding these wonderful horses for more than 40 years, and though personal issues meant that I had to give them up, recently have decided that it was a step too far away, and now have a couple of lovely youngsters to carry on with whatever the future brings.
SUE LOWE, NSW
EA Level 1 General Equestrian Coach
E level Dressage Judge.
I have been involved with horses for over 30 years. I began my riding career in the NSW Mounted Police where I not only rode horses but also sourced horses and trained both horses and personnel for Mounted duties, which are varied and difficult at times. I have competed in eventing, dressage to FEI level, show jumping been out on an endurance ride or two and generally enjoy varied disciplines. Although my true passion is with the sport of dressage.
I have been coaching for many years in different areas such as at work with the Mounted Police, as a Senior instructor at pony club, as a volunteer at the adult riding club or private lessons at home. I am interested in all disciplines of riding and enjoy building confidence in my students and their horses no matter how small it may be. I get enjoyment out of seeing personal improvement and success in whatever equestrian pursuit they do.
I am also a qualified E level dressage judge and thoroughly enjoy the challenge it presents. I feel understanding the judging process also helps in the teaching process to give a more rounded approach.
