Introduction of Panel Judging to Regional Shows

07/03/2017

Panel Judging

The Dressage Ireland Judges Committee is introducing Panel Judging at competitions in 2017 in order to provide an opportunity for judges to discuss and learn.

Panel (or Jury) Judging consists of more than one judge adjudicating a class with up to 5 judges participating at times.

In the instance of Dressage Ireland competitions, Panel Judging involves the co-judging of a class at the panel judge’s level with the class/master judge who must be of a higher list than the panel judge.

How does panel judging work?

  1. The class /master judge of the class and the panel judge(s) judge the class in separate cars, huts etc. with the class/master judge at C.

  2. The position of the panel judge(s) is at H, M, E, or B depending on the layout of the arena to be decided by the show organisers in conjunction with the class/master judge.

  3. Scores from all judges are averaged and count toward the riders final score.

  4. Panel judging is open to judges from List 5 to List 3.

  5. Only one level of either Novice or Elementary or Medium, is to be panel-judged at any one show.

  6. It is envisaged that there will be only one panel judge/class.

  7. At present, only the averaged combined score will be displayed online in results.

The advantages of Panel Judging are as follows:

  1. Promotes standardisation of judging which gives competitors an accurate assessment of their performance and, eventually, leads to higher standards in the sport.

  2. Prepares judges for future panel judging such as championships and finals.

  3. Also, prepares competitors for future panel judging such as championships and finals.

  4. Provides the competitor with another assessment of their performance.

  5. Promotes increased experience for all judges at all lists at DI competitions.
