    Default WONDERFUL online tests for newbies!!!!

    I was looking up training and level one, for some reason I couldn't visualize. I had the diagram, drew it out but was still getting confused! So google being my friend and with some expert key word clicks I found this wonderful website that not only had each movement drawn out on one page (the trees thank you) but you can print it out with the caller too!

    I am in newbie heaven!

    IMHO, this deserves its own sticky, right next to "dressage tests - where can I find".

    thanks!

    Smile Love it!

    Well, I'm not a newbie and I love it too! Thanks for posting this as I've never seen a free version of this.
    Every day I learn how little I know when it comes to dressage!

    I have a driving friend who asked about these. Seems they are SOP in combined driving.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Default Intro's Missing

    Many thanks to everybody for your kind comments on my site !

    Unfortunately there are no diagrams for the 2 Intro tests ( USDF were unable to give me permission to post them - I asked - twice )
    There are diagrams of the Canadian walk/trot tests but they are different to the US ones.

    However you can draw your own US diagrams fairly easily using these pages as a template :

    I hope that helps
