Better Dressage Scores is an online schooling show designed to improve your dressage scores and save you money.
To enter one of our shows, all you need to do is choose your test, film your ride, and enter our show under your corresponding test. Then, on the last day of each month, scores will be posted, your test will be emailed to you, and ribbons will be sent out!
Our judges are all experienced and rated judges. They will send you feedback and scores, just like any ordinary schooling show. As a bonus, you can also request in depth feedback from them. With this feedback, they will go over your test movement by movement and give you tips on how to improve your scores via exercises, equipment changes, and more.
Our scoring system can be seen below. You are not placed based on other riders’ scores, rather you are competing against yourself. For each show, you will earn ribbons and year end points. The points you earn accumulate for year end prizes (given in December of each year). These prizes will be awarded to our top three riders and includes gift cards to online tack stores, prizes from each of our sponsors, BDS swag, and even money towards a recognized horse show! Our top 10 riders will also receive gifts, so the more you show, the more likely you are to receive these!
We want showing to be affordable for everyone! That’s why not only do we offer an online schooling show for less than $20, we also post articles on great ways to save and make money in the horse world.
Even better, if you want to make some extra money, you can become one of our affiliates! Just register here and create your account. Then, share your personalized link, and every time someone uses your link to sign up for a show, you get 20% of the profits from that entry!
