CRC Dressage Tests Online with Equi-Show.com
For many years, I have been asked by my students and CRC Members if I would be prepared to judge DVDs or videos of their riding a test whether at home or in competition. Pressure of work generally makes this difficult for me, but back in 1996 I devised a unique CRC Judging System, with specialised mark sheets to allow riders more detailed feedback about their over-all performance. This has been very popular world-wide.
For that reason I am delighted to announce that Bronwen Strydom of Equi-Show.com has included the Classical Riding Club Dressage Tests amongst the different options on offer in her brilliant new iniative.
Bronwen (along with business partner Debbie Boltman) has gone to enormous lengths to create and provide this service because she believes, as do I, that everyone should be able to have access to assessments, and expert tuition, whichever country they are in, whatever their transport situation.'
The CRC classes are judged by our own expert judges - most of whom are also trainers and I believe you will find the analysis to be both refreshing and motivating. Our unique CRC mark-sheets can be ordered on-line and used on any of the CRC tests, as well British Dressage etc. You can also order our Judges Guidelines here. Scores are arranged in such a way that there is as much emphasis on the way in which the test is ridden, as on the way the horse performs. This allows the less flashy horse to score as highly as the top mover, provided the rest of the criteria is good. I see this as a great step forward for equitation in general since it provides more incentive to ride with tact.
It is therefore hoped that many of you will jump at this unique opportunity to get proper feedback from well respected people. Equi-Show is providing a tremendous service and should be supported by all of you who have longed for a more open system under which you may compete at home, against yourself, against others or simply to get a different viewpoint from outside your immediate circle.
So - get up and go for it Everyone! So many of you have waited for this - and it certainly has my blessing! Here is the link to the CRC classes. http://equi-show.com/classical-riding/
