British Dressage will be changing some senior tests from the beginning of 2011.

The following tests will be withdrawn for 2011:

  • Advanced 104
  • Advanced 106

“New” tests will be introduced – in fact existing FEI tests with BD numbers added.

The new tests are:

  • Advanced Medium 92: FEI Team Test – Junior (2009)
  • Advanced Medium 96: FEI Individual Test – Junior (2009)
  • Advanced 105: FEI Prelim Test – Young Rider (2009)

BD Test Information For 2010

New British Dressage tests for 2010

British Dressage have announced changes to the tests used in affiliated competitions. With effect from 1st January 2010, there will be four new tests and three existing tests will be withdrawn.

New tests

  • Novice 24 (2010) short arena (number being re-used)
  • Novice 39 (2010) long arena (number being re-used)
  • Elementary 40 (2010) long arena
  • Elementary 45 (2010) long arena

Tests being withdrawn

  • Novice 25 (2005)
  • Novice 26 (2006)

It is very important to note that (for the first time as far as I know) British Dressage has had to re-use test numbers. Novice 24 and Novice 39 were published in 2002 and withdrawn some time ago. So be careful that you have the correct version.

All the new tests are available now at www.dressagediagrams.com.
