Rachel Bandy Witt, daughter of David and Cindy Bandy of Wiloma Plantation, has recently passed the AHA evaluation to become licensed as a judge with the Arabian Horse Association. Rachel was National Champion Youth Judging 4-H/FFA Champion at the Arabian Nationals in 2002 and Collegiate Judging Champion in 2006. She currently works with the local Botetourt County 4-H Horse and Pony Club teaching young people horse judging skills. Rachel credits her father and the 4-H program for her success in horse judging and is looking forward to spending time in the center of the ring and evaluating the horses that she has grown up loving.
