He currently operates Jon Wolf Consulting which includes Perfect Practice Horse Judging DVDs for youth. He and his wife, Jane, reside in Galva, Illinois.

The Jon Wolf clinic will begin at 9 AM on Sunday, Oct. 2 with Conformation - Have you ever wondered if your horse is good enough to show? Is that horse appropriate for that division? - Come to this clinic and learn how to judge your horse. Next Jon Wolf will discuss Showmanship - Do you understand the scoring and requirements for a good score? - and third will be Obstacles - your horse steps off the side of the bridge, did you realize that is -3 points? Learn how to improve your obstacle class scores. Learn the scoring system so you can succeed.
