January 2014, GDA is undergoing a facelift with a new interface tailored for browsers and also for mobile devices. In the process we have completely revamped the computing backend for our service so we can handle many more riders and analyses. We now have final scores for every CDI event in continental America from 2013 and all Pony, Junior, Young Rider events worldwide. More than 4000 tests added over the last few days. The results from CDI Big Tour for many years were already in place and in the next few weeks we will extend that to as many Small Tour events as possible.
This means that if you have ridden in any FEI International Dressage event over the last years we almost certainly have your data in GDA. You can obtain a GDAStart account free of charge without any credit card, you will just need to register and contact us with some “evidence” that you are or you represent the rider in question. (This may seem a little heavy but we take confidentiality of your analytics very seriously!). With GDAStart you can examine the data we already have in the database, you can use our web-forms to upload your figure scores, you can link your videos to your tests, you can look at timeline analysis of your tests, study your score sheets in new ways etc. If you want more then you can become a subscriber and get access to our more advanced analytics indicating your strengths and weakness, your training possibilities etc, you can consult with us individually to help interpret the data, you can have GDA enter your scanned scoresheets etc.
GDA is working with a steadily increasing number of National Federations in the run up to the World Equestrian Games in Normandy this summer, and those same tools are available to National trainers for all levels and for individual riders anywhere in the world.
