Why doesn't the FEI allow freestyles at the PSG level?

There must be a reason for this, but I can't find it anywhere.

Um....they do?
Are you referring to a specific competition or region?
In Australia, there are certainly PSG/I1 freestyles at all of our championship events.

The FEI doesn't and because of it, the USDF doesn't either. Australian
Orgs might allow it, but its not FEI recognized.

USDF recognizes freestyles from levels 1-4, I1 and GP, but not PSG or I2 (because of fei regulations)

We combine PSG/Inter 1, not a straight PSG, but they're certainly recognised here. Odd that the US won't recognise them.

Because you need 3 tests in a CDI.
For small tour it's PSG, I1 and the I1 FS
For large tour it's GP, GPS and the GP Freestyle.

Young Riders ride a "PSG" freestyle because the three tests are as follows
YR Team, YR Ind (one of which is the PSG) and the YR Freestyle
Young Rider Grand Prix similarly ride an "I2" freestyle and their tests are:
YRGP Team, YRGP Ind (one of which is the I2) and the YRGP FS

Last year when I was not yet confirmed at the I1, I simple did 4th level and PSG, and a 4th level freestyle which has similar requirements to the PSG.

Good luck!

ETA it has always been this way. The FEI can't have FS classes coming out their arseholes so there is only one allowed per "tour". Having a PSG freestyle would be like offering a separate freestyle class for fourth level test one, and fourth level test two and fourth level test three, and third level test 1,2 and 3 would each have their own freestyle, etc...

Thanks! That makes sense.
