They hold the power to control peoples ravaging hunger for money and fame, and it all boils down to what is winning and what is not. And that is a direct result of judging decisions.
haha ok I never thought of it THAT way
I thought totalis's performance was stunning, maybe that's why im not an olympic judge XD I would give every cute horse a 99%

I hear you ridergirl! I'm not an expert in Dressage and my first impression was that it was a gorgeous test - which is unfortunately, the biggest problem of all. It's easy to get away with technically abusive techniques when you're catering to the non-experienced world. I mean, if we as horse people thought it looked good, imagine what people who know NOTHING about horses think? Flash sells, and it's only a bonus for any discipline world if they can be so flashy that they can attract even non-horse people into watching and enjoying.

I don't blame any judges, yes, they really should know better, but they made a mistake, lets not beat up a ref just because he missed a call. :)
No, it's not about bribery. It's about judges being too **** scared to knock the top birdies off their perch. Imagine what would happen if they knocked Anky, Isabell, Edward etc. etc. off their top spots and stuck a classical rider in their place? There would be uproar!!! They will stick to marking up the flashy horses, because this is what the spectators and FEI want. To make dressage a money making, spectator sport.
It's not about 'a ref missing a call', there are multiple judges the judge and FEI test, fair enough that ONE judge misses something because they're at a diffrent angle... but if every judge on that panel missed that Totilas, Salinero, Satchmo... are all stuck in a frame, tense, forces etc. Then they are blind.

I have to disagree about the 'no interest' comment on the olympic thing. I've heard several times that it was about judging discrepancies/objectivity of the sport. If judges are always 5% or more off of each other... then the sport is too objective to be considered a 'sport'. Kind of like you don't have 'art judging' in the olympics, lol!

The only reason I state this is because there are PLENTY of lame olympic sports that have almost ZERO people in the stands, and they are not in danger of being cut.
