Please be aware that the 2014 USEF Advanced Eventing Dressage tests are an exception to common practice and that the “B” Test is LESS technical than the “A” test. We hope that this information will allow Organizers to choose tests accordingly and athletes to plan competition calendars more effectively.
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.
Aspen Farms Horse Trials in beautiful Yelm, Washington is new to the Adequan USEA Gold Cup and PRO Tour Series calendar this year. Today, nine horse and rider combinations sloshed through their dressage tests in the Advanced division to post their initial weekend scores. The marks were fairly close, with nearly every pair breaking into the thirties.
