Five dressage judges have successfully completed their FEI judges exams at the 2016 CDI-W Salzburg on 9 - 10 December 2016 and have been promoted to 4* level.
Sarah Pidgley (GBR), Peter Storr (GBR), Eva-Maria Vint Warmington (EST), Cesar Torrente (COL) and Lee Tubman (CAN) passed the exam and are now 4* judges.
The course with exam was directed by Dr Dieter Schüle and Ghislain Fouarge in the standard format: a course with theory, a written exam, a shadow judging exam during the CDI-W Salzburg and a final, personal deliberation with theoretical questions.
Having done three FEI exams before, I can say that this one was exceptionally difficult with many very detailed technical questions," Vint-Warmington told Eurodressage. "But at the same time the whole course was extremely carefully prepared with very interesting video material concerning different problems of current dressage judging."
