Hi, bear with me please - what is "FEI" (I do know what it stands for) as an association, and how is it different from USDF? How does dressage in FEI differ from dressage under USDF? How does three day eventing come into FEI, and is that the only association undwhich eventing is done?
Is it possible to breifly explain the difference between USDF Dressage and Eventing dressage and scoring?
Looks like we're gonna have to do some digging through the leafy pile of lies to reach the crunchy croutons of truth before we can put some Ranch flavored righteousness on this salad-LexinVa
What bronte said. However, eventing dressage scoring is slightly different between the USEA/USEF levels and the FEI levels. Under USEA/USEF scoring, the dressage percentage is simply deducted from 100, to get the score in penalties so your eventing dressage score is the percentage points you DIDN'T receive. (i.e., a 62% is a 38) However, under FEI rules, the percentage is subtracted from 100, then multiplied by 1.5 in order to weight the dressage more heavily against the other two phases. (i.e., a 62% is a 57).
