An Exciting New Website for Dressage Score Reporting!

What happens when you combine a wife with a passion for dressage and a husband with a background in statistics and programming? Jay Stevens has developed a database using the publicly accessible results information to present and visualize the data in a way we have not yet seen on the internet. “The concept of a site to help increase transparency, accountability and tracking and to let people check out their own scores, their friends’ scores, their potential trainer's scores and their new horse's scores, had been forming in my mind for a while,” explained Stevens, whose wife Kerri purchased a horse in Holland through her trainer Ron Smeets.

Kerri Stevens and Zindane were in the top 10 standings for Adult Amateur Level one, and her horse Zidane was in the top 10 for First Level horse of the year as well as Reserve Champion for KWPN First Level. “It all started out when I was trying to pull these numbers manually to figure out the past performance of potential trainers here in the US and to get a look at Kerri and Zidane's competition for the end of year awards.”, said Steven. The site, which had it’s “soft” launch on June 23, is still in Beta is now on line and after doing a few searches we have been amazed at the depth of information. With plenty of data yet to be surfaced, Stevens also plans to apply the same sort of programming to the FEI results for international analysis as well. So check out your name or friend or favorite rider, trainer and horse. Stevens emphasizes the site is still in Beta and more features and enhancements are planned. We felt the results to be of such value that we wanted to share this with our readers. Be sure to take advantage of the feedback section easily accessed on the site to work with him in developing into a much needed asset .
