I'm not the best at reading the test and visualizing it. I found this on youtube

SO awesome! So I went to their site and they want $100 a year :eek: :( not so awesome
but you can pay $25 for just one level... :/ mildly not awesome.

Is anyone here a member? Have you found it's worth it?
I noticed you can view tests for free for a month, and was curious if you can download them during that grace period, but am too chicken to try it til I'm ready to devote time to memorizing in case I can't keep them.

I don't have a subscription - I just buy the tests for $5 each. They are an excellent visualization and well worth the money. I couldn't make any sense out of the new tests - just reading each of the movements doesn't get it for me. Strange because normally I'm not a visual learner, but for the dressage tests - their graphics really help.

Sorry I can't give an opinion about the rest of the package, but I do like what they've done to document the tests themselves.

I really like how they lay out the tests. Plus they provide the judges sheet so you can see what the judge is looking for.

the individual tests... i'm assuming they are just the PDF document
I'm wondering if the $25 for a level gets you the animated videos for each?

Why don't you contact them for more information? I've had some minor problems with the site and each time I email they have been more than helpful. I'm sure they'd help you figure out what you want to do.

It's not as professional - but when I was looking for visual examples of how a test was ridden, I just went to youtube and typed First level test one - or whatever and found plenty of examples.

Past subscriber - I will be subscribing again to get the new tests. I love their various ways of presenting the tests - I print them out and keep them in a notebook for all the relevant levels. GREAT for helping to memorize your tests, IMO - as they diagram the test movement by movement - so it's easier to visualize the test as you learn & memorize it.

Pretty sure they also have the USEA tests on there, too...
