Judge Training

Each year RDA hold training courses for those wanting to become an RDA Dressage Judge.  The RDA training days are currently a requirement for those also wishing to become a British Dressage Para Judge.  To remain on the RDA list of judges you must attend a refresher course every 3 years.

We have now completed four Judges training days for 2022. 

All four days started in the classroom followed by a practical demonstration. The classroom content included:

  • Language used when judging
  • What to expect in terms of disabilities (ID, VI, physical etc)
  • Difference between judging BD and RDA
  • Classification presentation including compensating aids

We will be holding further in person training at the RDA National Championships in July. Further details TBC. 

We will also have a shortened online judge training session on Thursday 20 April. To register please follow the link
