Dressage Seat Equitation - Group Class
Classes may be split according to level at the discretion of Show Management. This is a group class. The riders will be asked to perform at the level of their Dressage Test, with that level’s gaits. Extra movements are not requested except where the judge feels the need for added input from the rider. The rider’s position and seat will be judged as it relates to the horse’s balance, i.e., a rider with a classical hunt seat position would be acceptable at Training Level but not at Third Level. Riders may only ride in one group equitation class. Scores will be posted, however riders will not receive a hard copy their “test” because it is a group class. Note: this is an optional class and will NOT count towards rider’s Division score.
