First Dressage Test.

Heyy,

So we're joining pony club. So I was hunting around the dressage test book and I found the easiest one. We're new to dressage so I figured start very easy and come out with a good score. So a heap of people have seen videos, pictures, ect of us riding and how do you think we'd go?

Its the one on the 3rd page.

Thanks In Advance.

Sir Success. Eventer.

I bet you guys would be fine! Just remember that for a free walk, you don't want to just drop the reins all of a sudden, you want Chinga to 'chew' the reins out of your hands gradually. I know that chew is the wrong word to say what I'm trying to say, but whatever :). Also, don't practice the full test a lot, just snippets that you and Chinga were having trouble with. But I think you guys would do really well! Good for you for picking a test that isn't to hard- so many people over-estimate their abilities and go for a difficult test that they can't ride.

Thanks, your words really helped us out. If it wasn't age groups I know I would be against 6 year olds (hehe) but I'm sure there will be other people with horses on their first ever dressage test. I've done "fake" comps. But never a real dressage test, I'll post the date once I find out. I'm hoping to pick up the markers today, and do some dressage practise.

Yes, I can see us going well. But no matter what, we both will be nervous so anything over 50% I would be super pleased about. Does anyone know the pony club, dressage uniform?

Are you a member of a pony club? If so, the dress code is usually your formal pony club uniform, so club shirt, tie, jumper and beige/bannana/cream jods.

If you're not a pony club member and the competition is being run by a PC but open riders are allowed to enter, it is usually a shirt, tie/stock, light jods, and a jacket.
