Saturday, July 8th, is the USDF & USEF Continuing Education in Musical Freestyle Judging program and is open to USEF Judges, L-grads, current L-Program participants as well as amateurs and professionals. The program will cover music, choreography and judging criteria. Audio and video components will be used to compliment the program. Participants completing this USDF educational course will have a better understanding of freestyle judging and criteria.
On Sunday, July 9th, there will be a brief review of Saturday’s materials followed by ten finished freestyles ridden in a mock-competition. Participants from Saturday’s program will have the opportunity to practice their new skills by judging alongside Terry and Lois. Riders will warm-up outside, then enter the indoor arena and ride their freestyle. Upon completion of the ride, Terry and Lois will provide feedback and there will be an opportunity for the rider to discuss the ride and ask questions. Rides will be video-taped and each rider will receive a DVD of their ride along with a completed score card.
