    Directive to Australian Judges in the December Judges update from Dressage NSW

    9). Complaints - this year there have been complaints, mainly by parents, regarding judges talking to the riders after the Test has been completed.
    Please be careful how you phrase comments directly to a rider as they are frequently misinterpreted. Also remember you are a judge at the competition not a coach.

    Damned if you do and damned if you don't.

    helicopter parents are everywhere. They would be doing their children a bigger favor if instead of complaining at every perceived slight - they used the opportunity to discuss good sportsmanship and putting such things real or imagined in a proper perspective.
