In this lesson from the USEA Virtual Event College, Diarmuid Byrne from EquiRatings gives us a walk through on how statistics can be used to make predictions at equestrian events. Diarmuid compares past Kentucky years, explains what happened across the past two days of dressage at LRK3DE, and gives us his projected winners for 2018!
About the USEA Event College
The USEA Event College was created by the USEA and the Professional Horseman’s Council to generate awareness of the sport of eventing. The Event College aims to educate spectators, interested parties and the general public on the goals and function of each phase (dressage, cross-country and show jumping) and the complexity and value of the sport. The Event College also aims to educate young riders, adult amateurs, and all those interested in the sport on horsemanship and different skill sets needed to be involved with eventing. High-profile eventing experts will act as “professors” and host casual, interactive dialogue with “students” of the Event College. Anyone interested in the sport of eventing can be a student, and “tuition” is free!
