Dressage Tests

Each season, the WDDC select, from the dressage tests available on the British Carriagedriving website, a test, comprising a set of written instructions plus diagrams of the track a horse or pony turnout is required to drive.

Click to Download British Carriagedriving Novice Club Test 2019 (was 2013), to be used in WDDC outdoor events – arena size 40 x 80m (was 100 x 40 – amended 5.7.19)

. It is available for members to download then study and practice in preparation for club events such as the Charlcotte One Day Trial

It includes some extended trot, two 20m diameter circles at collected trot, and two straight sections with the reins in one hand.

Where appropriate,  a formula, requiring less stewarding and pre-event setup than a 6-obstacle trial, may be adopted. Members taking part in the winter season Indoor Horse Driving Trials will be familiar with the format, where only 2 obstacles are set up but are driven and timed twice to make a total of 4 obstacles. 2016/17 Indoor Dressage and a cones course (normally 10 pairs plus an A,B,C slalom) also form part of the competition format. The dressage arena will be 20m x 60m.
