Ive done one the dressage test was awfully weird compared to normal ones most of the time the dressage tests are pretty symmetrical or close too. But the one for the young horse competition was way asymmetrical it was a bit annoying to study.

^^hmm interesting !

I personally way prefer regular dressage tests to the eventing ones in general !

Just wondering, did you go to the comp or just ride the test at home ?

I rode in the comp yes and practiced the test at home. I remembered it just fine. It was just annoying to try and memorize lol

How was the jumping part ?

Well it was a low level so they weren't to high but they were good quality. Ditches and logs mostly.

5 doing Prelim isn't that big of a deal is it? My young horses full sister went 1* as a 5yr old (at a National Championship too..), her half brother won at 2* as a 6yr old..

But I rode in the one in NZ when Ellie was 4, she got a bit phased by the big screen and going through a horse shoe in the fenceline..but was a really good experience because there was a crowd for the big screen (which was in the arena) so she's now immune to crowds ;)

Must be a NZ thing Ambie - we have them out at atleast training as 4/5 year olds and then pre-nov HT at 5. By 6 they are novice and above.
If my stupid donkey would stop growing long enough for me to get some jumping into him he'd be doing the same. Probably entering Open at Solway in Autumn - everything else is just too small. Going to crash and burn, but he needs to get out and see the jumps!

eventing, young horse
