Dressage Tests & Scoresheets


RDA offers a number of dressage tests for both classified and non classified riders, all of these tests can be found on this page.  Our tests are reviewed from time to time so please ensure you are using the correct version. For 2022 Grades 1 & 2 have been rewritten along with all Grade 7 tests (previously called ID tests) All tests now have the last movement reading ‘please leave arena where appropriate’ rather than stipulating leaving at A in line with BD tests. Freestyle tests remain the same.

Grade 6 tests are for none-classified participants. Grade 7 tests are for learning disabled participants. 

Please note all tests in the list below must be used for 2024 Regional Qualifiers and National Championships. 

The Freestyle Tests have been updated for 2023. The only change is the time allowed to bring in line with British Dressage.
