Achleiten/AUT: „eDressage“: successful world premiere in Achleiten!
Tuesday 12. June 2018
From Wednesday to Sunday, the international four-star dressage show in Achleiten experienced a successful world premiere called "eDressage". Tablets replace the paper sheets of the scribes when judging.

"We were all very excited," says Sissy Max-Theurer, who owns decades of experiences in dressage judging. "But after five days of the show, we can proudly say that the new paperless system is working great and judges, scribes, riders and audiences are all excited about the speed and reliability of the new system."

Thomas Lang, Austria's five-star judge, confirms: "The new system worked flawlessly, it was really great and completely unproblematic to work with. The input masks on the tablets are very clear, you can easily control every note and the comments are very quickly housed. The judge signs the protocol directly on the screen and the rider receives our protocol electronically 5 minutes after his ride. By quickly transmitting the notes, which need not be corrected afterwards, the audience gets even closer to the sport. "

Behind this new "paperless judging" system stands the clever brain of Daniel Goehlen and his software development company Black Horse, which, in cooperation with SAP (keyword: secure i-Cloud), is driving forward the technical development of these electronic sports rating systems. The European Equestrian Federation (EEF) has pushed this technical innovation with its Secretary-General Carina Mayer and its own working group, the Central European Dressage Group CED, in which Sissy Max-Theurer also participates.

"The possibilities that arise from this system lead us into a new dimension in the presentation of this sport," says show organizer Thomas Baur, who successfully co-ordinated the successful test run in Achleiten together with the reporting office Hippodata and all other participants.

Even at Cappeln Dressur International the paperless-judging will be in use.
