Forgive my stupid question -- it's been years since I laid eyes on a dressage test.
The numbers the judge gives for each movement are called "scores." So at the bottom of the test, when all your scores are put together and you get a final % number for that test, what is that score called? Is there a name for it to differentiate it from the movement scores? Is it a "total score" or "final score" or "test score" or what?
Usually someone will say I got an 8 on that, or a 4 Where a 4 or an 8 as a test score would be horrifying enough for you to tell no one. Although, explaining why you are burning your breeches would be hard.
Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.
