Dressage NZ is pleased to advise that following the recent meetings of the Test Review Committee and the Dressage Board, an exciting new structure is proposed for our competition tests. While riders in level 1 through Level 3 will notice little difference in the requirements, riders from Level 4 up will notice a more progressive and encouraging journey to the FEI levels. The basis of the changes are the adoption of the Equestrian Australia version of the USDF tests, but also retaining the equivalent of NZL Level 4 with half passes but no flying changes.
Read the full consultation document here and we look forward to receiving your comments about this proposal
Stakeholder feedback is invited until 28/2/19 by emailing
The Dressage NZ Board believes this is the way forward for our sport and looks forward to your support.
