Riders will receive:

What is a Protocol session:

Judge Protocol training for dressage refers to the rider riding a test of choice, the judge judges it and gives feedback to the rider on how to improve the riding of the test with the view to gaining more marks. After discussion, riders are able to re-ride elements of the test and receive immediate assistance with improvements or issues they were experiencing.


The judge is there to give feedback to the rider. It is not essentially different from a rider discussing the test with the judge after a competition except that there is an opportunity to repeat movements. Videoing the process can also add value or sometimes the rider may ride the test wearing a headset so that the judge's marks and comments are audible as they ride.


The process is a very good educational tool and generates cooperation between judges, riders and coaches. It will benefit riders at all levels. The rider could ride a test at a level they have not yet competed, to get a sense of whether they are ready to step up, without the public pressure of competition. It can also be a very valuable tool in both judge and coach education as well
