What is CenterlineScores.com all about?
Take a look at our "About CenterlineScores" page.
What is the CenterlineScores Rider Rating System?
The CenterlineScores.com Rider Rating™ system is a new way to rate, rank and evaluate Dressage riders. The system is modeled after the Dutch National points system. Rather than focusing only on short-term score performance, the CenterlineScores.com system rewards riders who have proven success over time, up the levels and on more than one horse. You can read about the details here.
Where do you get the data / information that you display here?
All of the raw data used on CenterlineScores.com is available for anyone to see on USDF.org. The data you see here is all publicly available to anyone on the net (and is not taken from any of the “Members-only” sections of the USDF site).
How soon after the show is finished will my scores be available on Centerline Scores?
Dressage show scores are typically reported by Show management to the USDF within 1-2 weeks (although in some cases it could be longer) after the show finishes. CenterlineScores.com typically has those scores within 36 hours from the time they are published on USDF's Results calendar.
How far back do you have scores?
Due to limitations on the available USDF show results, our data only goes back to the 1993 Competition Year and results prior to the 2003 Competition Year are very likely to be incomplete. However, from 2003 to present the data should be complete.
I don’t see the results for my show, what’s the deal?
We update our database pretty regularly, but the only time you’ll see anything change is when a new set of show results is posted to USDF.org. Once those results are posted, you should see the updated information on CenterlineScores.com within a day or less.
I rode a great “Introductory” test, why isn’t it here?
Unfortunately, USDF only posts results for USEF-approved Tests. The Introductory tests are USDF tests and official show results aren’t available for them.
I’d like to see scoring data related to Judges, why isn’t that here?
CenterlineScores.com has TONS of data related to the Judges for each ride. However, because we feel rather strongly that (historically) analysis of judging data has been skewed and in many cases very misleading, we want to be very careful that the data we present isn’t misused, misappropriated or twisted to say something that isn’t supported by the facts. We will plan to make the judging-related data available in the future in a form that we think will be both usable and useful.
The label next to my name says I'm a 4th Level Rider, but I've ridden Prix St Georges, what are you doing there?
Right now, CenterlineScores.com will display a label for each Rider and Horse that shows the highest level in which they have achieved a score of 60% or better. You can do it, you're almost there!
Are you a part of or officially endorsed by the USDF or USEF?
No. CenterlineScores.com and Black Horse, White Horse, LLC are not associated with, endorsed by or affiliated in any way with the United States Dressage Federation (USDF) or the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF). While we believe it is demonstrably true that our database is the most comprehensive, complete and accurate record of dressage scores available in the United States, the dressage scoring data presented and aggregated on this site should not be construed to be a complete and official record for any given rider or horse. Please visit the USDF website (www.usdf.org), the USEF website or your local show management organization's website for official results.
