Jan Bemelmans' proposal on Eurodressage about changing the invitation system for the judges looks like a revolution. Nevertheless, it could be a very good way to improve the transparency of the international dressage competition system. Nowadays, except for FEI Championships, Regional and Olympic Games, the judges are chosen by the organizers, who have most of the times many connections with the dressage sport. Therefore, an independent authority which nominates and follows the judges’ nominations could be a very good way to improve the confidence of the public, the trainers, and the riders about the judging system.

Of course such a proposal is far away of the actual system, and it could only be implemented by the FEI after a long preparation period, similar as the process of reform the French President Macron is starting in my country: first through working groups with ll stak Macron is starting in mHit through wo> is sta norm_facron inamediv =ie by tstudn periuntas system.tartin in mHIDOC systAIDEOon e osts livnatfulI afalso on ieldmosr ae, an indJSP system.tsystvoration od,.
