Hi there, I live in Germany but its the same procedure.

E, A, L, M, S, PSG, GP.

I don't know what relation they are in to your levels, however.

E you can compete on anything, without anything.

To go to A, you have to do a 'reitabzeichen'. I don't know what its called in Holland. You have to be able to jump 90-110cm and do an E dressage test, and a theory test- but its spoken. I was quoted €500 to go to Warendorf for a week, morning dressage, afternoon jumping for a week, then the test included. After you have done that, I think that's Bronze I, you have to wait for 6 months before you do Bronze II which is A jumping (unsure of heights) and A dressage.

You then have to wait 12 months to do your silver, and then you specialise in either dressage/jumping. And then gold when you hit PSG.

Its expensive, and I hate jumping, but I do know its the same.

You also get A*, A**, L*, L** etc through the levels.

I don't understand enough to get you a calender though, apologies!

Okay, thank you!
I found by myself some page, but I think that's not right page, because there was only two competitions

Do you know how high those levels are in centimeters?
