“Dressage TestPro is proud to support the USEA American Eventing Championships for the first time. Since launching TestPro in 2017, thousands of riders have learned their tests using the app and now eventers across the U.S. have the same opportunity! Dressage TestPro offers a unique interactive learning experience on [a] phone or iPad so that you never forget your test! We look forward to welcoming the prize winners into the TestPro team and hope everyone has a great time with their horses during the Championships,” said Tracy Ormrod, Co-Founder of Dressage TestPro.
Since 2017, Dressage TestPro has been the leading app for riders to learn and memorize dressage tests. Dressage TestPro offers several interactive features, and within the app users have the option to draw the test using their finger or tap the screen to have the app draw the movement itself. Users can also watch the dressage test from start to finish, listen to the dressage test play while riding, or pause, replay, fast forward any movement of the test.
“Dressage TestPro is one of the best apps for memorizing dressage tests,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “It is a wonderful resource for eventers of all levels and of all ages. It’s easy to use and makes learning dressage tests simple and fun. We are very thankful for the support of Tracy and her team at Dressage TestPro.”

What a week in Aachen! Nicole is joined by Erik Duvander and Jenni Autry to relive a brilliant week for U.S. riders in Aachen in this special bonus episode.
When Daniel Stickney met his future wife Kathy in college, he had zero involvement in the horse world. Kathy had ridden as a teen and after marrying in graduate school, the couple was invited on a trail ride by an acquaintance who owned a boarding and lesson barn. That trail ride sparked Kathy’s fire for riding again and she began working at the barn to help offset costs of lessons and boarding for her first horse, Kismet. Suddenly Daniel found himself in the saddle as well. The two have been riding together for over 30 years now.
