9th Annual ADU Improving Your Judging Eye & Training Skills Seminar

feat 5* Intl Judge General Stephen Clarke

Oct 27 & 28, 2018

All dressage enthusiasts are invited to join us for this educational event featuring 5* Intl Judge General Stephen Clarke!  Stephen Clarke's career as an FEI Official & International Judge, has taken him around the globe to all major dressage competitions including multiple World Cup Finals, European Dressage Championships, World Equestrian Games, Olympic Games, & Pan American Games.  He is now heavily involved with the training of future FEI Candidates and International Judges.

The focus of this unique Seminar will be the expectations and judging of horses of various breeds as they progress up the levels from Training Level to Grand Prix.  Commonly a judge will see a variety of breeds and types of horses competing in the same class.  This Seminar will be very practical in that each level will have at least 2 live demonstration rides in the ring at the same time, performing the movements in the same session.  Good points and not-so-good points will be discussed for each rider pair, and how to judge the differences in the same movement as it is being performed by very different types of horses.
