I don’t know about dressage tests or anything of that sort, but I have super horsed before. So, with Sassy, I competed in an English class, jumped, western pleasure, horsemanship, reining, barrels, poles, and keyhole all in a day. It made for long days, but she seemed fine until she was diagnosed with nevicular.

A couple other horses I all-arounded, adding a couple more classes (nothing particularly fun), and they held up fine. I will say it made for stressful and long days for them and for myself.

I agree to an extent @horselovinguy, but when I have a big day like that I really only warm up prior to the first one. If there is a big span between two classes I will lope a couple circles to loosen them up again, but I don’t continually warm up all day.
