    Default Dressage score in eventing

    Hi all,

    I have a mare that was eventing at intermediate level but unfortunatly due to injury can't jump anymore, i was thinking of maybe doing dressage with her. Can anyone tell me what a good dressage score would be in eventing i have her competition record and at one outing she scored 37.1 for the dressage section is this a good score. Is it the lower the score the better or the other way round. What would 37.1 work out on a normal dressage test.

    Many thanks

    For eventing, you calculate the % from the good marks as normal, then subtract that % from 100 to get penalties.

    So 37.1 penalties = 62.9% good marks in the dressage test.

    As for whether it's good, it all depends on where she was relative to others in the class as one day you get a "happy" judge and then the next day a "grumpy" judge!

    The lower the score the better. That equates to 62.9% in dressage. Just take the penalty score away frrom 100 to get percentage.

    That sort of score is pretty average eventing.
