The Dressage in Florida Circuit has a "family" of workers and volunteers who have been a part of the growth of American dressage from for over twenty years. Julie Noble, originally from England was an X-ray Technician, with a degree in psychology who began scribing for some of the larger dressage shows on the Florida circuit since it's inception. She has scribed for most of the top international judges and seen four Olympic Selection Trials. "Having a front row seat to some of the finest rides our country has to offer has been just one of the many perks of this job. " Noble reflected. "I have never written for a judge I did not enjoy. "
She described her friendships and the people she has worked with throughout the years to be like a family. "We seem to always pick up where we left off, as each season begins." As Noble reflected on the years shared with so many names in international and national dressage fame, she explained, "When we lose a person or a horse we have all known there is always a sense of losing a part of that family."
This weekend, at The Wellington Dressage Classic, a USET Olympic Qualifier, Julie and fellow CDI scribe Frieda Sessions arrived with bunny ears and Easter baskets for FEI Judges Volker Moritz, Mariette Withages, and Axel Steiner.
