You be the judge at Sydney CDI...

Published on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 in General

Organisers of the 2017 Sydney CDI*** are giving the audience the chance to put themselves in the judges' seat, with a new app allowing spectators to score competitors. 

In a first for the Australasian region, spectators can download the free app and experience judging first hand as they unofficially “score” each competitor as if they were in the judge's box.

While spectator scores don’t influence the official results, the focus of the app is stronger fan involvement and a more intense engagement with the sport of dressage.

The development of the app by “Black Horse 88” and “SAP" was supported by leading judges, organisers and riders, and many top European shows are taking advantage of what the app offers to their events. 

Spectators can see how close their scores are to the official results, and compare their scores with their friends.

Commentary during the event will update the audience with spectator judging results.  Spectator judges, at the event whose scores are closest to the official results, will receive a prize.

The app is available for free from the App-Store (Apple) or the Google-Play-Store.

We recommend that users download the app before the event and start judging! There are test events to start people off and they can join in judging on overseas events, including the World Cup Dressage Final in Omaha in the USA which will be live streamed.

The Sydney CDI would like to thank Daniel Goehlin and SAP for making it possible for us to bring this exciting concept to dressage fans in Australia.

Free for Android and iOS: Just type “Spectator Judging” in the AppStore / Google Play and install the app.
