    Default Scoring Upper Level Dressage

    I am trying to understand the quality of upper level rides, but I know that the scores are uniformly higher than lower level scores.

    I understand that there is a co-efficient which is multiplied by an upper level dressage score to make the score higher than it is actually judged. Does anyone know what it is?

    I.e.: Is an Advanced score of 40 = an *actual* score of 32? 35? 28?

    What levels use these multipliers? And is the multiplier the same for each level?

    Why do they exist at all? The only reason I can think of is to make dressage a more important component of the overall final score. Right?

    The multiplier is only used at FEI events and it is always 1.5
    The national levels, BN-Advanced, do not use a multiplier, only 1*, 2**, 3***, and 4**** events do. So for example, a score of 40.1 in a CCI*** would be the equivalent of a 26.7 in an Advanced horse trial because:

    26.7 * 1.5 = 40.05

    Hope that helped!

    Don't believe the hype.
