Thumbs down Stretchy circle in the FEI Junior Individual Test

Just was looking over the FEI Junior tests as I hope to ride them soon. The team test is very friendly, and I know I can do it. The individual test is doable too, but I can't help but notice they've stuck a stretchy circle in it. What??? And you have to do it in a double bridle? Not so excited now. So my question is, are they going to make you sit that circle on top of the double bridle thing? It doesn't say anything about rising trot like it does in the training and first level tests. I'm not sure I'm going to be wanting to do a test with a sitting trot stretchy circle...I'm unhappy enough about doing it in a third level test with a double bridle.

Hi Pony Dressage.
Yep-- you have to sit!!
Just practice (both with the DB and the sitting trot!)- remember to try to keep the tempo/ quality of the trot the same. Welcome to the wonderful world of FEI!!
Where are you riding it??
Although it is a med/ 3rd level test- it is a strong one and you would want to be working well at 4th level/ adv. Med to be competitive.
Good Luck.

Yikes. I suppose I'll just stick to the team test for now. I'm planning on showing it on a horse I'm doing PSG/I-1 on, so no worries. We will be showing 4th at the same time. I'm not trying to qualify with her (she is very difficult and I try to take her only to shows where we don't have to stable), but I'd like to get some practice riding the test. My other horse will be ready for 4th level in about two years (I hope) and I will try to go to NAJYRC then.
A few questions:
It's okay to ride jrs in a TOC when you aren't qualifying, right? And is it okay to ride in a jr test class without trying to qualify?
Also, you don't need the FEI passport or any of that until you are qualifying for NAJYRC, do you?
Thank you!!

Hi PonyDressage
Not sure what you mean by a TOC.
In terms of an FEI passport, you shouldn't need one unless it is an FEI CDI/ CDJ/Y that you are attending. National shows don't require one. If you are unsure, check with your NGB.

I meant a test of choice class...

Ahh.. we call it an 'open' class over here. Should be fine-- check with the organisers. We certainly run FEI tests here upon request, though don't count as qualifiers unless in the schedule with the appropriate judge.

Sounds good. Thank you!

One more question: since it is an FEI test, are you required to wear spurs?
    06-12-2012, 03:36 PM
Spurs are optional, and actually if you are not riding in a qualification class, so are double bridles.

If you are not trying to qualify for anything this year you can show in TOC classes, and in a snaffle. This year I've only shown PSG/I1 in a snaffle.

Good luck!

Thank you Anebel. This makes it much more viable, though I do have dummy spurs I could have worn. I was watching the Juniors at Gladstone and they all seemed to have big spurs on, so I figured it was required, but I guess not. Definitely tempted now...but then I will hopefully get my third level scores for my bronze this weekend and after that I'll probably want to start working on my we will see.

dressage, fei juniors
