2022 USEF Dressage Tests
What can you expect from these new tests? One change is the addition of a Test C at the Modified through Intermediate level, allowing competitions the opportunity to utilize three different tests throughout the competition season.
The 2022 USEF Intermediate Test C, which is written for use in a 20x40 arena, may only be used for eventing competitions that demonstrate a topographical or logistical hardship which renders the venue unable to assemble a 20x60 arena in the designated competition area. The process to request permission to use this test can be found here.
The USEA Classic Series also has new tests for 2022 for the Novice through Preliminary level. Gear up for one of the 2022 USEA Classic Series competitions now by reviewing and practicing your Classic Series test!

If you take one look at Jim Moyer’s Facebook page, you will see it is filled with sweet sentiments from the lives he has touched through his work in the equine industry. Moyer’s involvement with horses began when he met his future wife Jean 50 years ago. As Jean went on to become a prominent instructor in eventing, Moyer found that their friend circle was full of horse people, so it was only natural that he should find his place in the community.
Horses and riders in 12 divisions, from Starter to CCI4*-S, tackled the show jumping phase of competition Sunday at The Event at TerraNova, over a track designed by Nick Granat in the world-class setting of the main arena. Prize money was awarded in all divisions.
