A Level?

Hi guys, I've been trying to google this but I think I am typing in the wrong thing because I can't find the answer haha.

If in Europe you are competing in eventing at the A Level, what does that mean? (either if you could give me information about it or give me it's equivalent, that would be great! Thanks a lot!)

Advanced, I would assume.
Max height is 4'3", dressage is the equivalent of like 4th level or so (you've got flying changes, half pass, shoulder in, extension, collection, etc.)

I would also assume advanced, unless it's talking about Pony Club A level.

Im from Germany and The low to high the Levels are: E, A, L, M, S. In jumping an A -Level means: 100-110 Centimeter and there is a water ditch in the parcour. In dressage you have to ride backwards, middle trot, middle gallop, sideways in an exact form. I think this was it. Im sorry I dont have the vocabular and I hope my answer is understandable.

Is here someone who can tell me a little about the eventings in England? Do you also have an site in the internet to register for an event or how does it go? Where can I find the local events?

What tests you have to make to rise in a Level? What Levels do you have there?

Depends on the country. For example; in Belgian, A (Aspiranten) is the lowest category. A real 'starter classe'. A big difference with the German A class, like I red in the post above me.
