I remember in the past people have asked about how many tests they might reasonably ask their horse to do in one show. I feel like the answer was three or four was OK, but any more than that was probably too much.

This made sense to me at the time, but now I'm kind of wondering about it. Because, whether it's a dressage test or jumping a course, it's not going to be more than five minutes long, right? So if someone did, say, five tests in a show, that's 25 minutes of actual riding, plus maybe 15-30 minutes warmup time? Which is comparable to an average lesson, at least for rme.

So my question is, why is five or more tests in a show too much to do? Or IS it really?
