Lexington, KY (December 16, 2016) - The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is pleased to announce that thirteen USDF members successfully graduated from the USDF L Education Program (L Program) in 2016. 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 improve 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 approved USEF Senior (“S”) dressage judges, who have experience in teaching judge-training programs.
