Helping at LEG events
No penciller – no test. Pencilling is a very important job at dressage – second only to the judge beside you.
As a penciller you are required to record the judges’ comments and scores against each movement through the livescore app.
All of the necessary information is contained in the background and all you need to do it enter the bridle number, score and scribe!
'With the advent of the tablets and livescore, scoring has gone virtual and painfree!
Gear check is another one of those jobs that must be done and doesn’t have to be a difficult one. If you’re concerned about what to look for, check out the EA guidelines (with pictures).
For a LEG day remember the basics – white/light jods, collared shirt, number on both sides, gloves, appropriate boots, appropriate helmet and legal whip length.
Not sure if a bit or spur is legal –there are lots of members who are well versed on gear check and are happy to help.
The gear check person needs to make sure they are marking off the riders as go through gear check to compete.
Gear check is fun and a great way to get to know other members.
Collect morning teas and drinks from the catering and deliver to the judges - easy!
