TDRC thought we would run a video dressage competition so you can at least aim for something and pretend you are out in the big wide world again!

Attached are the 3 BRC tests for the online competition (we have to use BRC tests as BD do not allow their ones to be used on video). All tests are in a 20m x 40m arena and will be judged by a BD Listed Judge.

Class 1 Walk/Trot Test 1 (2020)
Class 2 Dressage Test D1 (2020)
Class 3 HT 100Q (2020)
Entry fee for TDRC Members is free. Day Members £3.00 for one test, £5 for two
