I think for dressage it also depends on the level. If you are doing high level with lots of collection, one tempi changes, pirouettes and all of those bells and whistles I’d say one test is plenty. But if you are just doing intro tests without collection have at it. I’ve been doing those intro tests at home and those are just like “regular” ridding. I could do five without breaking a sweat (me or her). I don’t because both of us would find it boring but I don’t think it would be physically challenging for a decently fit horse and rider.

What might prove to be a problem is focus for both horse and rider. I find that trying to remember the test wears my brain out and I lose focus a bit after a few times. Then again I’m no Charlotte - I guess at upper levels it isn’t an issue.
