Without writers and other volunteers, competitions simply could not take place. Writers play an important role where they sit alongside our judges to record scores and observations.

Becoming a writer
A good, efficient writer who understands their role, plays an essential part in making a competition run smoothly and successfully. You will make it easy for the judge to concentrate on their role assessing the competitors; and will make it easy for the competitor to read and understand the judge’s comments afterwards. It's also an excellent opportunity to enjoy dressage from a good position, whilst learning from the expert – the judge.

If you are interested in being a writer at some of our large events contact our Training and Education team.
