Dressage judge comments scribes did write: Part 25
People from all over the world read, Tuesday’s Top 10 – Dressage judge comments scribes were NOT allowed to write.
Many of our readers shared comments that HAVE actually made it onto dressage tests. There have been so many colourful dressage judge comments, we have enough gems for a series.
The dressage judges who let their scribes write these comments, certainly were not sugarcoating anything. Thank-you to all the riders who shared these hilarious, real life comments. Despite what a judge writes on your test, this phase of Eventing remains interesting when the unexpected happens. Thank you to all the good sports who are sharing some of their most humiliating dressage moments with a sense of humour.
Dressage judge comments scribes were allowed to write:
“Horse needs MUCH relaxation!”
After my OTTB hopped and lurched his way through the test after spotting a cow like ten miles away in a field… and then exits on a long rein. – Eva McGuire
“Capable team with unfortunate problems.”
A friend and I received this identical comment from the same judge this year. – Mel and Maria in Pittsburgh
“Tempi changes not required at this level.”
– Cris Covert
She is a very nice Warmblood but not broke until I got her at age six. She had very strong opinions about the dressage court as she could not understand why she could not run and jump which is the only think she thinks is worth her time! – Ursula Behiel
“Horse should be trained to be going at this level.”
Quite a comical test. I think I was laughing more than the judge. – Kari Tankersley
“Horse was restricted.”
But it absolutely looked like she wrote “horse was retarded” which, to be honest, was pretty darn accurate! – Ainsley Jacobs
“Beautiful, relaxed jumping form.”
We may have jumped around the outside of C during our canter circle. – Alesse Coover
“Not quite naughty.”
– Diana Nichols Vagneur
“Horse alternates between angelic and evil. Very bravely ridden!
– Sharon Palmieri
