National Judge Training
Limited Exemption from National Training for Judges
Judges, who attend either FEI (Eventing or Dressage) or British Dressage (BD) sanctioned judge training, may apply to the Judges' Committee for exemption from National Training in order to remain on the Dressage Ireland Judges List, provided they submit the following:
Applications for prior approval for upcoming FEI and BD judges training must be submitted to the Judges Committee at least seven days before the next scheduled Judges’ Committee meeting (contact Judges’ Committee Secretary for date).
When accepting an invitation to judge, judges should make sure they are satisfied with the terms of their judging appointment. This should be done by discussion with the competition organiser before commitment is made. Below are guidelines set out by the Judges Committee which have been circulated to dressage competition organisers.
Judges at present are entitled to a minimum fee of 80 euro. This is equivalent to a return journey of 140 km at 60 cent/km. If the return journey is greater than 140km the judge may claim the additional km at the above rate. This will result in a fee greater than 80 euro. The maximum that can be claimed is 220 euro.
