Judges Seminar

National Judges Convention 2017

BDSC again supported the National Judges Convention at Addington Manor, Bucks on 18 April hosted by Peter Storr, Sandy Phillips, Isobel Wessels and Laura Tomlinson.  They assessed 8 horse and rider combinations from Novice to Grand Prix. Each rode part of a test judged by the three judges from different positions around the arena, just as would happen with a panel at a major competition. Then one of the judges worked with the rider to help improve the way of going and thus the marks.

It was apparent that the position of the judge does affect the marks given as each position enables the judge to evaluate a different aspect of the test and this was reflected in the judges’ comments on what they saw.

The riders included Holly Bates and Cambridge, Antonia Brown and Krack DE owned by Catherine Witt, Ashley Jenkins with Sam Forrest’s Grandio, Lara Butler with her own and Anne Hutton’s Amiek C, Olivia Towers with her own Mercian Calisso, Dan Greenwood with Juliet Leighton’s Chevalier O, Lara Butler with the Bechtolsheimers’ and Laura Tomlinson’s Unique and Alex Hardwick with her mother’s Donauwein.

Jo Graham and her team put together a day to remember with the theme of bringing together trainers, judges and riders – Together Everyone Achieves More.

    This was one of the best days I have had at any educational seminar. Ferdi was just amazing, We are so lucky to have him and Stephen is such a legend: the two of them together were just mind-blowingly fantastic. A wealth of knowledge shared, you can’t put a price on it. Also the fabulous riders were a credit to the sport. Thank you BDSC; also BD and all involved.

    Dear Penny
    I am writing to express our thanks for the kind sponsorship which the British Dressage Supporters Club made to the National Judges Convention held on Wednesday 13 April at Addington Manor, Buckinghamshire.
    We had just over 600 people attending – which was an amazing turnout and the feedback which we have so far received from attendees has been excellent. Everyone really enjoyed the day and benefited from the experience of both Stephen and Ferdi.
    Once again many thanks for your kind sponsorship of this event which has greatly helped to make it such a popular event in the Dressage calendar.
    I hope that we can work together again in the future.
    Kind regards

    JUDGES CONVENTION 2006

    Dear Jane

    Please would you convey to British Dressage Supporters Club my personal thanks for making possible such a superb seminar at Addington yesterday.
    We are so fortunate to have both Ferdi and Stephen’s talent and knowledge to learn from, and to have them together with great guinea pigs, good setting and not forgetting the weather, all made a really good day.

    So my thanks for BDSC’s sponsorship.
    Regards to all

    Maureen Newall
