DRESSAGE TESTS FOR 2021
Single Horse and Pony Dressage tests: BC Novice, BC Test 2, and BC Open Singles have been amended for 2021 with the removal of one-handed movements and the initial halt. This is to bring BC in line with the new FEI Single dressage tests. The scoring will be unaltered, as the number of movements remains the same.
All Pony tests, Single Horse tests at all levels, Open Horse Pairs and all Tandem classes will be run in an 80x40m arena.
There are 2 new FEI dressage tests for Advanced Singles for 2* and 3* in an 80x40m arena which apply to Advanced Single Horse Classes and will apply to the Advanced Single Pony Classes after the 2021 World Championships; the dressage test for Advanced Single Ponies remains the same as 2020 until then.
Horse Fours and Advanced Horse pairs dressage tests remain the same as 2020, with arena size 100mx40m.
