New Rules for Dressage Nations Cup Series
Posted on Mar 09, 2018 by Peter
Inaugurated as an official six-series contest on 2016, the Dressage Nations Cup has now dropped the traditional best of three results, in favour of a points system based on placings in the three levels. The team with fewest points would win irrespective of scores.
This could make for closer competition, placing the emphasis more on team performance, and an even more exhilarating watch for spectators. When the new points system is applied to the 2017 Rotterdam CD105* results, the Netherlands would have been awarded gold and the USA silver - a reversal of fortunes.
