Looks pretty good to me and this test will take you about 5 to 6 minutes, but I must say I'm not the best for suggesting music for dressage freestyles, good luck

REAL dressage to music is called a Kur.

If you designed a test then selected a piece of music you liked ( or just took any piece that may be available) it is no longer a Kur but a ride with background music. Is this what you are doing?

A GOOD Kur has thought and practice put to it and there is no one piece of music that fits all three gaits, hence a good Kur is planned and practiced so each movement is timed according to what is being played.
