The USEA Training Program for Eventing Officials (TPEO) educates the next generation of officials and encourages members of the community to give back to the sport by becoming licensed officials, including judges, technical delegates, and course designers. Quality officials are vital to the safe running of competitions and ensure that all safety rules and precautions are followed to the letter. You can be a part of the next generation of officials!
If you have ever considered becoming an eventing judge, then you'll need to attend Dressage Session I Training Program. The Dressage Session I Training Program must be taken prior to taking the Dressage Session II Training Program later in 2020, and it is necessary to complete both to obtain the "r" Eventing Judge license.
The first two days introduce prospective judges to the biomechanics of the horse and how it is reflected in the training scale of judging. The second two days offer practical application in the field with live horses. This is an opportunity to increase your knowledge of how the judge is evaluating and determining the scores during a dressage test. Auditors are welcome and may pay on-site if they wish, but pre-registration is much appreciated.
