View Full Version : Dressage Scoring question

Apr. 23, 2010, 09:19 PM
Can someone help me figure out what a 30.4 penalty score would be in a standard dressage score? I was always terrible in math, but this formula is twisting me up like one of those questions they used to ask in grade school....if a train leaves a city traveling 70mph...
Looks like we got 160 out of 230 possible points.

Thanks in advance.

As long as you're not doing anything FEI, it's actually relatively simple - just 100 minus your penalty score. So in this case, 100-30.4, or a 69.6%. They actually determine your penalty score by subtracting your "dressage score" from 100 - basically, the penalty is score is the points you didn't earn. You can also get your standard dressage score by dividing the number of points you got by the number possible (here, 160/230). Hope that helps!
