somethimes you do get that biast judge i have done entered two horses in the same catergory one was bay white blaze very pretty and he did the most horrible test you could imagine counter canter, chucking his head taking off wouldnt stop the most abrupt transitions and he got 3rd my other mare marble appy a scar on her back leg white blaze , she did the nicest test ive evr done on her perfect transitions , on the bit, long and low foward free walk she got 2nd to last several people watching her test commenting on it and how nice she looked and yet she didnt do well? sometime just because they shouldnt mark according to there own perferences doesnt mean they don't
I agree, I have seen some interesting dressage tests at events in the past, and wonder how in the world they scored how well they did, in compareson to other rides in the same category.

Dressage is the ultimate most important factor to HT's, if you don't do well in your dressage phase, you have allot of hard work ahead of you to catch up, or you sit there and cross your fingers hoping other competators in your category end up refusing or getting pennalties out on the CC course.

It is really difficult compeition out there, the serious competators work very hard on a daily basis to be fully prepared for their next compeition - and if you are not ontop of your game *Prepared - mentally, physically* then don't bother, because you will be up against many who are.

*I assume you are speaking of the dressage phase?*

Ann rides a flee bitten grey
and Spencer rides a black welsh pony and all have done well at shows

Those are all "accepted" colors, an appy is often seen as a "western" coloring, and judges are more likly to be biased

yes i am , as i find personally that it all lies one person opinion, at HT where there are 3 judges its is alright as its not just one person and it is very unlikely to get three biased judges

but as i have mentioned this is all just from personal experience

sorry for dragging this very off topic =P

Stormy,
Sometimes you get unbiased judges, sometimes you dont. Sometimes, even if it's not just colour, one judge will "like" another horse better because maybe it's pretty even if it doesn't preform as well. They may like a better breed, look, colour, whatever.

It doesnt always happen.

ditzydoo - don't appologize. I love discussions :)

Spastic_Dove, I wholeheartedly agree with you.

I would like to say that I've been in the Eventing world ALLOT longer than you Stormy Blues. - I've seen allot. It is very nieve of someone such as yourself who is just starting to wet your big toe in this very competative world to say that all Dressage Judges who Judge the Dressage Phase at HT's arent biast. Because they are out there.

Try doing a full season of Eventing, yet - even compete in 1 recognized USEA Event before you make rash judgements.

spastic_dove i agree with you too =]
stormyblues like MIeventer says you may be lucki and get the judge who isnt biased i have done gotten amazing marks on my appy for a very average test because i had a judge who loved appys and owned alot of them it depends on who you get , when you have been eventing a long time you get a rainbow of judges some who like you horse and some who dislike your horse incrediably
my friend has been competing in eventing for close to 8 years now and she ahs had a whole variety of horses colours, breeds, builds all different.
she is currently competing novice (1m15) and she curently competes a 15hh chunky stationbred he has beautiful movement but she finds that if she goes in directly after a finely built thoroughberd or warmblood she always gets worse marks as they look at the finely built horse and then look at him and he just looks big and chunky even if he moves beautifully and has exact movements he will not always get marked accordinally as he just does not look as fine or pretty as the previous horse. . .

I'm sry to hear that. I want to leave pretty soon but I said I would put up a vid of my horse doing a haunches in. My mum broke her toe and hasn't been able to watch me ride so.... Good luck with all your endeavors. Happy trails!
