Lexington, KY (January 8, 2016) - The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is pleased to announce that 68 USDF members successfully graduated from the USDF L Education Program in 2015. This program is designed to prepare candidates to enter the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) “r” Judges Training Program, to qualify individuals to judge schooling shows, and to give competitors, trainers, and instructors greater insight into the evaluative process of judging dressage. The program also serves to provide continuing education for licensed judges. The L Program is an excellent opportunity for all USDF members to learn how to improve their scores and their ability to view other rides from a judge's perspective, whether or not they plan on becoming licensed judges themselves. USDF L Program faculty are all approved USEF Senior (“S”) dressage judges, who also have experience in teaching judge-training programs.
USDF congratulates the following new graduates of the USDF L Education Program:
K. Melisa Martell
* Lydia Knurek
* Susan Machin
Mary McGuire Smith
* Julie McDermott
* Sharron Sarchet
*Lisa Del Mundo
* Joseph Dennis Munnelly
*Denotes those that graduated with distinction from the L Program. Those who pass with distinction are eligible to apply to enter the USEF recorded (‘r') judge program.
