New Test Symposium with

Symposium Program

Kristi Wysocki is an FEI 4* Dressage and 5* Para Dressage Judge. She is also a USEF Sport Horse Dressage Judge. She has served on the USEF/USDF Test writing committee since 2013. Her intimate knowledge of the tests themselves, the different components of the tests, and the reasoning behind modifications to the tests each cycle, brings a special insight to the audience for this New Test Symposium.

Kristi has trained and competed herself from training level through Grand Prix. She received her bronze, silver and gold medals and has competed successfully in the CDI arena. She has trained and coached many riders, both amateurs and professionals, from training through Grand Prix. Many of these riders have also received their USDF medals and some have been successful in the CDI arena. Kristi has been judging dressage since 1997. She has judged many CDIs and CPDs around the world, including two times the World Championships for Para Dressage. She has judged the USDF National Championships numerous years and many Regional Championships around the country.

Her engineering background and sport horse breeding expertise bring an additional in-depth understanding of the biomechanics involved in the sport. This too gives a better insight to the development of the levels and the approach for each test.

A student of Kristi’s recently shared “I love that she teaches the Why, and not just the How”.
