The FEI has released two new dressage tests for 2014 for the CI levels. The CI3* Test A, and CI2* Test B have been replaced, but these new tests will not be effective until July 1st, 2014, giving riders ample time to make adjustments.
From the FEI: "The Eventing Dressage Tests, CI3*A and CI2*B have been updated to include a better view of the changes for the E or B judges and more logical flow of the movements (changes have been highlighted in red).
These tests have been reviewed by Mr. Chris Bartle, Christoph Hess, Mrs. Gillian Rolton and other FEI Eventing Officials.
The Eventing Committee have agreed that the revised tests will be implemented as of July 1st, 2014.
Please refer to the FEI web-site for the new version: http://fei.org/fei/your-role/organisers/eventing/dressage-tests"
