BACH is also offering a Scribe Clinic with Donna Meyer, a USEF “r” and USEF Western Dressage “R” judge in conjunction with the ride-a-test for anyone who would like to learn how to scribe or would like a refresher! The clinic will help participants understand the responsibilities of the scribe and offer helpful hints on how to stay organized during a show.
We will cover the guidelines for scribes including: scores, common abbreviations, errors, and other general advice. The discussion will be followed by a practice test and Q&A. Participants will also have the opportunity to practice throughout the ride-a-test schedule! Come and learn what the judge is looking for: what earns high scores, what can lower your score, and hear a judge’s perspective on how each movement should be ridden.
If you would like to volunteer at local shows, this is great opportunity to gain the knowledge, confidence, and practice to be ready!
