I'm really hoping that I put this in the right place. Anyways. So I've finally decided that I'm going to compete in a rally for Pony Club. I've only done one rally before and it was an everything but the horse rally two years ago when I just started. I happened to have picked the regional qualifying rally. 28 teams last year- great. I have never competed in dressage so I have a few questions:
1. There is a rule in the rally packet that states that in FEI tests training through fourth level spurs are required except in junior and pony divisions. I'm going to be performing intro level tests ( I can ride training level but this is my horses 1st competition.) Does the spur rule still apply because I'd rather not use them?
2. USPC specific. For turnout I was told that I could wear khaki breeches and a polo (I'm a D-3) . I really don't want to buy a coat but am wondering - will it really be out of place? Then again I'm going to be riding in a black jumping saddle so maybe not?
3. Polo wraps and bell boots? I think I read in our manual that leg protection isn't allowed for dressage.
4.Tips for practicing and memorizing tests?
I really don't know what I'm doing so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
