    Yes, she almost was paralized from neck down. Her pelvis was crushed, and so were parts of her spine. It would have helped if she was wearing a vest, but she was just warming her up

    I hope she made a speedy recovery, must of been in allot of pain for a long time.

    That's a shame. Horses are unpredictable.

    The test begins with the entry at A and ends after the salute at the end of the test.

    So one salute at the end of the test.

    Exactly, that's why I believed Hoofprints' Dressage Test at a Mini Event would have only the salute at the end of her test.

    I've never been to a HT recognized or non, where the dressage tests requires the competator to halt and salute at the beginning of the test.

    Well, look at her test. It says halt and salute at X. At the end it says halt and salute at X.

    Yeah, I was a bit confused about that.

    yeah if you are doing the intro level then you are doing a USDF test, which does. But the eventing tests don't.
    I went to the USEA website and I looked at Eventing Tests, and I realize now why Hoofprints is doing a USEF dressage test intead of a USEA dressage test - the USEA tests do not go as low at Introductory.

    USEA dressage tests start at Beginner Novice, no lower - so that makes complete sense now. But it is still conflicting to me - beacuse Eventing Dressage, you never halt and salute at the beginning - and Introductory is to teach the new comers and prepare them for when they do advance to BN and higher - so don't you think they should be following USEA rules, even if it is a USDF test?

    Spyder - you are 100% correct though about USEA/USEF tests.

    I'm so confused!!! Lol It does appear according to this mini trial series, that I am supposed to halt/salute both at the beginning AND the end...

    This form is labeled USDF...what does that stand for by the way (forgive my ignorance)

    United Dressage Federation.

    Stick with what your dressage test requires. If that is the test that your Introductory Level is asking for, then stick with it.

    If you want to be double sure, ask your coach - or get a hold of the organizer of the event itself.

    I am just confused because you're doing an Event - but required to do a USDF test.........

    I don't want to confuse you anymore than what has already been - just make sure you discuss this with your Eventing Coach.
