Livescore Dressage decentralises the scoring process by getting the scribes to enter the scores in real time.

This means that you no longer have to go through the process of collecting dressage sheets, taking them back to a central office and having a scorer (or multiple scorers) stuck in an office doing data entry all day.

Movement marks and judges comments are entered directly using tablets, thereby completely removing paper from the system.

Individual movement marks can't be missed as the app won't let a test be finalised unless all scores are entered and the judge signs the test.

Removing paper cuts down on your printing costs and avoids problems of paper score sheets going missing in between the judges box and the scorers office. Having scribes do the data entry that was previously the role of the scorer, either reduces your costs if you are paying your scorer, or reduces your volunteer overhead so that you don't burn out valuable volunteer resources.

Livescore Dressage combined with the Scoreboard scoring system, speeds up the entire process so that you don't have to wait around until early evening for the results to be available. You can fit more in to your day, or get home earlier. Your riders and spectators are also happier because they don't have to wait around for hours after they have ridden in order to see their test sheets.

If the internet connection is lost during scoring, it does not matter as each test is automatically saved to the device. As soon as the internet connection is restored, the app automatically begins uploading the saved tests to the scoreboard server.


Spectators can watch a "virtual big screen" with real time updates on a riders trending percentage and place - sent to their phone on a movement by movement basis in real time.

Spectators can tag individual riders and get sent final scores for that rider as soon as the test is completed.


Receive a digital version of your dressage test, complete with judges comments, as soon as the judge has signed and uploaded it.

No more waitng around until the sheets are collected, and data entered. In most cases you will receive your dressage test sheets by the time you get back to your truck.

Tag other riders and get an alert on your phone when they start their test. Use this feature to keep an eye on progress in your ring, or use it to make sure you never miss your friend’s tests.

The LiveScore dressage app will work on any smart device (tablet or phone, Apple or Android), Your type of input device (stylus or keyboard) will most likely determine what tablet or phone you use. If your judges and scribes are sitting in a car all day whilst judging, a tablet with a stylus is much easier to use, as balancing a tablet and keyboard on your lap all day is difficult. However, if you have judges boxes with tables, using a keyboard to type the comments is easy to do - as long as your scribes can touch type.

If your scribes are going to write the comments using a stylus, we recommend the following:


 Any of the Samsung tablets with S-Pen (Tab S3, Tab A6, Tab A10.1 etc.)

 Samsung phones with S-Pen (Samsung Note 7, 8, 9 etc.)

 Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro with M Pen


 Any of the iPad Pro’s with Apple Pencil. The iPad Pro12.9 inch is probably the best as it gives you a large surface area to write on.

 If your scribes are going to type the comments, it doesn't matter which type of tablet you use as long as it has blue tooth connectivity. For the purposes of scoring, you just need a device with WiFi or Mobile data capabilities. You don’t need a tablet or phone with a lot of other features.

The app works via a tablet or phone. It works on both Apple and Android devices and the judges comments can be entered with either a stylus or a keyboard. The app replaces a traditional paper test sheet. The Livescore Dressage app works in partnership with Scoreboard – a live scoring system that calculates scores and placings, and displays results in real time online.

The app sends movement marks to the server on a movement by movement basis, which then pushes a trending percentage and potential final placing out spectators.

Each scribe receives a login, which only gives access to the classes and tests their Judge is scoring . Each movement is scored the same as a paper test. Once completed tests are signed the scoreboard server calculates the riders provisional placing and score and the digital test can be either sent to riders immediately, or held in the system and sent out at the end of the class..

If you use Nominate to manage your event entries, you get the Livescore Dressage system for free. If you are using your own management system, the fee is $1.00 per horse, per event.

*Please note you must use your own tablet or mobile device.

Once a Judge has completed, signed and submitted a test, the test is then uploaded to the Scoreboard server, which then pushes the scores out to riders and spectators via the Scoreboard app. It also makes the riders provisional score and current placing available online.

If the venue doesn't have a reliable internet connection, the Livescore app stores the movement marks on the local device (tablet or phone) and then sends them to the Scoreboard server as soon as an internet connection becomes available.

Scoreboard is Nominate's online scoring system, catering for all disciplines, including Dressage, Eventing, Show Horse, Show Jumping and interschool, plus many more.

Scoreboard interacts with the Nominate entries system, allowing entries to flow through directly into the Scoreboard system. Entries can also be imported into Scoreboard via MS Excel if you are using your own entry system. It also posts results live to the Scoreboard website, as soon as the scores are updated.

This reduces the need for riders to come to an office to check results, giving them the ability to check anywhere and anytime!

The Scoreboard scoring system can be used independently of the Livescore dressage app as a traditional scoring platform, with the added advantage that multiple scorers can be entering results at the same time and even the same class, reducing the workload on just one scorer and allowing results to be put in quickly and easily.

Scoreboard also interacts with the Scoreboard app, allowing riders and spectators view current events, view classes, tests, sponsors, draws and results.
