New Dressage Tests--3 tests per level...
I've been doing a little research on the new dressage tests, hoping to start memorizing/practicing early. :winkgrin: Anyway, one of the first things I noticed about the tests was that there are now 3 per level instead of 4.
Currently, I show Training 3 & 4 with the hope of moving up to first level next year. I'm wondering how this will affect what tests I show next season. Until now, I have ridden the two intro tests, then Training 1 & 2, then Training 3 & 4.
For me, grouping the tests in 2's worked out nicely because of the difference in the 1 & 2 and 3 & 4 tests and the simularities the pairs had to each other (plus, the shows I've gone to treat groups of 2 tests as a division for year end awards). Is this just me? Do other riders usually show all 4 in a level? Any ideas as to how the new tests ought to be grouped (pick 2? show all 3?)?
