International Sport Judges Seminar in Berlin

April 7 2013 | Sport

About 50 International Sport Judges from Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and Austria attended the International Sport Judges Seminar in Berlin (April 5-6, 2013). The main item was practical judging (and discussing judgements) based upon selected video material.
The evening program contained lectures about invisible rough riding and doping procedures. Furthermore the judges discussed the next step in the new guidelines, based upon a system with firewalls connected to the key elements in judging: riding skills/connection. beat/balance, suppleness/relaxation, physiology/locomotion and execution of the test elements.
Judges with an international license are obliged to attend such a seminar at least once every three years. Connected to this meeting the first meeting of World Championships judges took place, to prepare for the World Championships 2013 in Berlin, August 4-11.
