Requirements:Reliability. It is particularly crucial that Breed Committee staff regularly log in and are able to look through registrations Impartiality. Breed Committee members may not show favouritism towards particular members’ horses. They may not, for instance, fast track registrations for their friends Communication skills to enable them to explain what may need to be changed on a horse for it to be accepted in a clear, polite way. Be able to tell if a horse conforms to the breed, strain and body type it is being submitted as (but be appropriately lenient) Have an appropriate level of genetics/color knowledge to approve/decline unambiguous horses Preferably be able to research effectively using the internet and be able to explain why some sources of information are more appropriate than others Knows when to ask for assistance/feedback from other Breed Committee staff Works well in a team but can also independently accept registrations when assigned to a specific breed group
