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!
