*Make your Own Test: As USEF/EC will not allow online usage of their tests, you can design your own test with the requirements for that level. Music not allowed. Test will be judged similar to Freestyle tests. Your test can closely mimic an EC/USEF test, but please try to have at least one difference.

ALL Dressage tests can be read (even Make your Own). They should be filmed from C, but if that is not possible, please film from E or B. Please film from the time the horse enters at A, until the move off from the final salute. Do not edit the video (other than to clip the beginning or end), and please leave original sound. Voice rules apply, and no outside coaching.

If classes 3-6 have more than 10 entrants, they may be split in a suitable manner at management’s discretion, with an overall “champion” of the class.

Dressage Classes will be scored with scores and comments emailed to competitors. These classes do not have ribbons, but will have awards. Please view the Awards section for more details.

As well as class placements, to encourage all breeds to try dressage, there will be Best of Breed to awards for the following breeds if they have at least five entrants in any level of dressage:
• Morgan (Part or Purebred)
• Arabian (Part or Purebred)
• Saddlebred (Part or Purebred)
• Thoroughbred
• Quarter Horse/Appaloosa/Paint (Stock breeds)
• Ponies
