Equifest: March 2017

This blog presents a statistical analysis of the judging of 18 classes at the Equifest event held at Hawkesbury Showground, NSW, in March 2017.  Only the statistics are posted and no commentary is provided.  Judges are not named but simply referred to by their position and their judging level (shown in brackets).  The statistics presented should by now be self-explanatory.  If not,  you may care to look at the comments included with some fully worked examples which were set out in an earlier blog.  A full description of the methodologies used can be found here.

Clarendon: March 2017

This blog presents a statistical analysis of the judging of 20 classes at the Clarendon, NSW event held in March 2017.  Even though it might be a little arbitrary, this blog normally only provides analysis for those classes with 7 or more actual rides (usually not including ponies), which explains why not all classes offered at that event are covered.  Only the statistics are posted and no commentary is provided.  Judges are not named but simply referred to by their position and their judging level (shown in brackets).  The statistics presented should be fairly self-explanatory.  However,  you may care to look at the comments included with some fully worked examples which were set out in an earlier blog.  A full description of the methodologies used can be found here.

Warringah Dressage: February 2017

Even though there were several classes judged at the February 2017 Warringah Dressage Association event, most had only a small number of riders or only had one judge.  This blog will therefore only analyse one class, the Open Competitive Novice 2.2.  As usual, the judges are simply referred to by their position and their judging level (shown in brackets).  Most of the statistics are fairly self-explanatory.  However,  to better understand how to interpret these statistics, it would be advisable to look at the explanatory comments included with some fully worked examples which were set out in an earlier blog.  A full description of the methodologies used can be found here.

Sydney Dressage: February 2017

This blog presents a statistical analysis of the judging of the largest two classes at the Sydney Dressage event held in February 2017.  Due to heatwave conditions in Sydney, this was a very small competition,  so all classes had very few entries.  As usual, judges are simply referred to by their position and their judging level (shown in brackets).  Most of the statistics are fairly self-explanatory.  However,  to better understand how to interpret these statistics, it would be advisable to look at the explanatory comments included with some fully worked examples which were set out in an earlier blog.  A full description of the methodologies used can be found here.
