    Post Anne Gribbons No longer judge at WEG.

    http://www.dressage-news.com/?p=4283

    LEXINGTON, Kentucky, Dec. 8–Anne Gribbons will be the United States Dressage Technical Advisor, including coordinating all high performance coaching programs, though 2012, the U.S. Equestrian Federation announced Tuesday.

    “Gribbons will oversee the training and preparation of US riders and horses as they prepare for World Championship, Pan American Games and Olympic competition,” the USEF said in announcing the contract.

    Gribbons, 63, is one of the United States’ four “O” judges and is based at her farm at Chuluota, near Orlando, Florida. She is a native of Sweden but has been active in U.S, dressage since 1972.

    She had been named president of the ground jury for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Kentucky next year, subject to her acceptance of the USEF post.

    “She will advise the USEF Dressage High Performance Committee regarding the allocation of training grants and the selection of athletes for teams. Gribbons will monitor the form and soundness of perspective horses and the form and riding skills of candidate riders in order to identify areas for improvement.”

    Following the search for a replacement for former U.S. dressage coach Klaus Balkenhol of Germany, Gribbons was offered a dual position as USEF Dressage Chef d’Equipe and Technical Advisor.

    However, at the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) General Assembly last month, Gribbons was named to the FEI Dressage Committee for a term extending through 2013.

    “In order to remove any potential conflicts of interest regarding her participation on the FEI Dressage Committee it was agreed that the Chef d’Equipe position would be filled by the Managing Director of Dressage,” The USEF said.

    The Dressage Managing Director/Chef d’Equipe position will be filled in the near future. The managing director post had been held by Gil Merrick for four years until his resignation in September.

    Will be sad if there is not a U.S. judge for WEG2010 when we are hosting the games.

    so i assumed that the reason for the job title of tech advisor vs. chef was to get around the judging conflict...which didn't seem to truely remove the conflict...

    if it didn't remove the conflict, then why not just make her the chef as the revised original job description is what she has taken on?
