Do you think the Judges are being harder?

I was at a show last weekend. It was the hottest weekend in CA this year. There has been some complaining about how hard the judges where. I know there where a lot of low scores. But as I watched some rides they seem to right on. I know my horse was a little flat. He did have lack impulsion. My scores seem to be that same as other shows I have been to this year. Have you all noticed a change in the judging this year? Do you think it is because of this rule change?

Hi Barbara,
Here in he states they want to pass a rule that you have to qualify to move into 4th level. Here is the link, http://www.usef.org/documents/disciplines/dressage/PerformanceStandards.pdf
There are a lot of riders that do not want this change. How is it in Canada? Do you need to get points to move threw the levels? I do not think the judging has been harder. But there is a lot of people talking like it has. I have heard that they want to use 1/2 scoring. I don't think that is a bad idea. But I am not sure how that will work?

That's a very interesting question. I have found over the years that sometimes the marks have seemed really low and other times the judges have given me a surprising gift.I am not showing this year, so what are the rule changes? Are they international (I am in Canada). I know there is talk of half scores. Has that been implemented? How would it work?
