Practice your test(s) prior to our first schooling show on April 24 and 25!  Each 30-minute session allows participants to ride their test(s) of choice, receive a written critique from the judge, work on key elements to improve their test scores, and if desired, re-ride the test.

  • Maximum of 10 riders per day. 

  • A wait list will be maintained for riders in case of over subscription to the event.

  • Each 30 minute session is $30 (Includes use of the arena).

  • Open to all Western and Classical dressage riders

 

Check out the tests and see which one is right for your debut this spring!

Saturday April 10:

  • 1-4 PM. Location: Roy Yates Training.  We will scribe with Megan Bretey as she judges during the Ride-a-Test clinic.  We will discuss the judge’s comments on the tests while Megan works with each rider after their test. You are welcome to practice scribing on your own for the remainder of Saturday’s tests, and on Sunday April 11 during additional Ride-a-Tests.
