Politics is alive and well!!

Coming up to the DJWTS (Dressage and Jumping With The Stars) in Melbourne and NSW riders are reeling!! With the best training in the country, it's hard to qualify when the Sydney judges give 2 qualifying scores out of a field of 30 at Clarendon, in contrast to 26 out of 30 in Queensland gaining qualifying scores from a visiting International judge!
We all know that dressage judging is "subjective", but this seems to add fuel to the argument that we need a "panel of judges" for qualifying events, with perhaps 5 judges and jettison top and bottom in Olympic judging for gymnastics, diving, etcetera!!
