Centaur Workshop - Katrina Wuest
This years’ workshop brings one of the most internationally respected and sought-after trainers/judges to share her training and judging philosophies. Delivery will be from a rider/trainer view point as well as discussing all aspects associated with judging – this workshop is set to be highly educational and informative and a great opportunity to see one of the worlds best working with a selection of horses and riders.
Katrina Wuest has been a dedicated dressage rider throughout her life. She trained many horses and competed very successfully on her own horses up to international Grand Prix level, being part of the official German B-Team from the early 1970s to the early 1980s. After the birth of her children, she shifted her focus more and more on judging. Having been an FEI judge since 1994 and a 5* judge since 2006, she has judged Championships on all levels: Young Horses, Children, Ponies, Juniors, Young Riders and Seniors, 5 World Cup Finals included. Beyond this, she has officiated at the WEG in Tryon, 2018.
As one of the FEI Course Directors she gives seminars all over the world, helping to improve the judges' education wherever possible. Katrina studied German-, English- and American Literature, combined with Communication Sciences as well as History of Art in Perugia, Italy. She was a member of the Dressage Task Force in 2009-2010 and helped to work out new ideas to modernise the judging system, such as half marks or the JSP. Recently she developed a new, standardized system to assess the Degree of Difficulty in Grand Prix Freestyle presentations to make the judgment more transparent and understandable, also for the spectators. Despite her full schedule, Katrina never gave up riding and continues to work her horses when she is at home. Furthermore, she occasionally writes articles for journals.
