Dressage To Music is marked on two main factors.

  • First, your riding, for the same sort of things you get marked on in a ordinary dressage test
  • The other aspect is something entirely new. Your choice of music. If you ride a huge cob down the arena to ballet music, then you’re not going to get marked particularly well. Your choice is very important, and you must keep your horse in time with your music, and your horse should move at about the same pace as the music

Even dressage riders will tell you, regular dressage is only a spectator sport for people who do it themselves, unlike show jumping or cross country. But Dressage To Music is also fun to watch. one thing you must always remember is try to put a good show on for your audience. The judges will mark you on this as well.

 

To be run in accordance with current Pony Club Dressage Rules.

Please also refer to competition schedules for specific rules and eligibility and to the test sheets for required movements at each level, including pairs.
