“A good freestyle evokes positive feelings and emotions. The rider must sell his freestyle to the audience – and the judge is part of that audience.” Frequently acknowledged as one of the world’s leading authorities on Musical Freestyles and the way they are judged, we were lucky enough to have German FEI5* judge Katrina Wüst attend the Bates National Championships. She judged a variety of classes – including the 2017 Pacific League Final in New Zealand - as well as presenting a seminar on the keys to a successful freestyle.
