At the heart of this application suite there is the concept of making dressage – especially the freestyle – more transparent and more enjoyable to watch.
In cooperation with and supervised by the FEI
We have built this project from the ground up. When leading dressage experts contacted Daniel, we did not know this would turn out to such a great and amazing opportunity. We are very thankful for the continuous support in this project.
Many have contributed and we could not have done it without you. Ideas, opinions and feedback from riders, judges, organizations and dressage fans have rightfully shaped the Freestyle Scoring System and are continuing to evolve this project.
An amalgamation of technology
We used some of the most modern technologies at our disposal! Here are only some of them:
- C# + WPF, Swift, Java
- PHP, REST, XML, JSON
- GIT, JIRA, Confluence, Bamboo
The Floorplan Creator allows riders to create and submit their floorplans. This system completely implements the vastly improved freestyle rule set which has been refined over many years by a large group of dressage experts consisting of riders, judges and officials.
We developed a standalone version for use on the showgrounds and the official FEI WebApp that is integrated with the FEI Entry System. You can find it here*.
If you face any enquiries regarding the Floorplan Creator please feel free to contact us anytime or use the contact form on the FEI website.

The Judge Assistant manages and displays the various floorplans submitted by the riders. It is the second key part of the system which enables judges to score the freestyles. All aspects are completely supported and tested. It is prepared to be incorporated in the established workflows on site. This system is presented by us and hippo data.
The Judge Assistant has been applied at all FEI World Cup™ Freestyles of the Western European League since 2016. It has even been used at the Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, Florida in 2017 and has received requests from all over the globe. We are working relentlessly on making the Freestyle Scoring System available to more shows.
Of course, you can also apply for our services if you are interested in them and if you want to have them on your event.
Live Scores & Results is a responsive WebApp designed as an easy tool to display results generated through our systems (official scores or spectator scores). As an organizer, you can style and embed our tool or just use your established workflow instead.
We think fan engagement and interaction is a great opportunity to enrich horse shows. On top of our Freestyle Scoring architecture we built a stable app that allows the audience to have a much more exciting experience by trying to be an inofficial judge themselves.
The Spectator Judging App has proven to be a much appreciated tool to involve the audience in the sport of dressage, showjumping, driving and vaulting. More than 100 shows have offered Spectator Judging with outstanding success.
