Lexington, KY - The United States Dressage Federation™ (USDF) is pleased to announce that twenty-three USDF members successfully graduated from the USDF L Education Program in 2017.
This program is designed to prepare candidates to enter the US 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 USDF L Education Program is an excellent opportunity for all 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 Education 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:
* Karen Mahaffey
Nancy M. Schmidt
* Renee Carter
* Cory Oconnor
* Marie Macdonald
* Heather Walters
* Jessica Wright
Kelly Pullen Cronin
*Denotes those that graduated with distinction. Those who pass with distinction are eligible to apply to enter the USEF recorded ("r") judge program.
