Dressage Rules and Regulations


EA Dressage Competition Rules & Procedure (Effective 1st January 2008, updated revision 2009).


Group division for Preliminary and Novice classes ONLY
  • As a way to encourage children and amateur riders to compete in Dressage, the Organising Committee has divided riders into 2 groups. The classification of each group is as follow:

    • Group A - Riders having achieved over 60% in Preliminary tests in the past 12 months.
    • Group B - Riders never having achieved 60% in Preliminary tests in the past 12 months.

    NB:
    • "Rider" means a rider's result and not a horse and rider combination.
  • We encourage riders to compete in the highest level they can, but not on the expense of the horses or ponies. The Organising Committee has set the requirements for Elementary and Dressage classes as follows:
    • Elementary Classes - Riders must have been previously placed in Novice tests.
    • Medium Classes - Riders must have been previously placed in Elementary tests.
    • Advance Classes - Riders must have been previously placed in Medium tests.
  • Riders will have to specify themselves their groups in the Entry Form. The Organising Committee is not responsible to determine which group the rider belongs too. However, failing to enter the right group may result to elimination.
  • Sharing of horses can only be done in Preparatory and Group B events with the maximum of 2 riders per horse.
  • Sharing of horses is not allowed in other levels.
  • Horses in Group B are NOT ALLOWED to enter in Group A events.
