Important Message – Dressage Tests

Dressage Tests for the 2022 Season – Please Note!

BC has reviewed their dressage tests for 2022. https://www.britishcarriagedriving.co.uk/dressage/index.htm There have been a number of changes to tests – a small change has been made to BC Test 2 (now labelled 2022) and most notably, the adoption of FEI tests for all Open and Advanced classes.  

NICDA and HSI Carriage Driving have both agreed not to follow BC with regards to adopting the FEI Dressage Tests at our club events.  Please note that any Open and Advanced drivers who wish to use the FEI tests at club events who wish to complete in GB or abroad will be facilitated. 

The following dressage tests will be used at club events by both clubs North and South in 2022. Prenovice Class and VSE/Small Pony Class – BC Pre Novice Test (2008) *NO CHANGE

Nicda Workshop…

The committee of NICDA intend to run several workshops early this year. Our first workshop will be for anyone interested in learning how to record the scores using a computer program. It would be ideal if many people were trained in this to spread the workload. This training will take place on Saturday 22nd January in The Lakes, Moira from 2-5pm. There will be further opportunities to access this training if this date does not suit. Please let me know if you are able to attend on this date. Many thanks. Dominic Muldoon 07394090720
