Classroom Session with FEI 5* Dressage Judge Elizabeth McMullen presented by Nova Scotia Equestrian Federation.


Separate registration is required 

6-8 pm Friday, June 21, 2019  


8:00 AM Registration

9:00 AM-10:00 AM

You’ll get acclimatized as 3 riders demonstrate movements and paces while Lib: 

  • Critiques and scores the movements

  • Explains how the rider can improve the movement and raise the mark 


10:15 AM - 4:30 PM  

8-40 minute test-ride sessions with a one hour break for lunch


Each Ride will have 4 components:

  1. Lib McMullen will wear a microphone as she judges the rider's first run at the test so she can share her marks and comments with you, movement by movement. 

  2. Following the test ride, Lib will work with the rider and their coach for about 15 minutes to improve a few select movements from the test.

  3. Then the rider will re-ride the test for you, your peers, and of course for Lib (sans microphone) to score.

  4. After the final halt, Lib will share her marks and comments with the group so you can see how your scoring compares.    


One-Hour Lunch Break 


End of Day Wrap-up (15-20 minutes - longer if needed)

Lib will answer questions submitted during the day and then open the floor for questions and discussion.
