    Default Green As Grass/Tadpole, etc Dressage Tests?

    What test do the shows in your area use for the below BN divisions? We are trying to create one for shows in our area and would like some ideas.

    We have two divisions around here that are below BN. Amobea is the lowest at 18" and uses Intro Test A. Tadpole is after that at 2' and uses Intro Test B.

    For Smurf (18") we use Intro A or B depending on what time of year it is. Others will let you chose, and for Rock Hoppers (12") we use either also.

    Depends around here-- the 2'3 or 2' divisions mostly use BN A, the 18" divisions use either BN A or Intro A, and the below 18" always use Intro A. I think it really depends on who you're expecting to enter. Teeny kids on ponies and very beginner adults are best doing the WT test; the rest of us on the green/ OTTBs are mostly focused on staying in the ring and are sort of expecting a disaster, so cantering usually isn't make or break

    Like others have said, most use the Pony Club walk/trot tests. For our local organization though, you have to do a canter test even at Green As Grass. This is the test:

    Rhode Islands are red;
    North Hollands are blue.

    When we have our Starter Horse Trial, our Green As Grass(18") did Intro B, and our Grasshoppers(2'3) did BN Test A, with BN doing BN Test B.
