I didn't have the actual test (First Level Test 3) in front of me, so I may have made some mistakes about where exactly movements started and ended, but I got down 22 movement scores for each rider, marked the movements that had coefficients, and put in collective scores. Cara said a few things during the tests, but for the most part I already had a mark down for a movement before she said anything about it, and I didn't make any changes to my scores.
In between tests, I was busy listening to Cara talk, so I didn't have time to tally up my scores at the time. Yesterday however, I did total my scores from the night and compared them to the official results. The official results were judged by Doreen Horsey, Equine Canada Senior Judge. Here they are:
They're not perfect. All of my results are on a narrower spread than the real results (which seems like a common problem for people not used to judging, being scared to give the really high or really low marks). However, I am pretty darn proud of this in general. None of my scores were off by that much, and I had the same class standings as the real judge (except I technically came up with a tie for riders D and E, but Doreen Horsey had them less than 1% apart herself so that's not too bad).
Knowing the difference between a good test and a bad test doesn't mean I'll always be able to ride a good test, not by a long shot. Knowing what the judges are looking for does help in achieving it though. Also, I can guarantee that I would have been much farther off the mark if I had tried this exercise 2 years ago. I'm learning, and that's a good thing.
P.S. I cannot say enough good things about scribing as a learning experience, scribing has helped develop my eye so much.
