Advanced Medium, PSG, Intermediate & Grand Prix Tests available as free downloads on FEI website

I recently discovered that a couple of friends who had purchased the British Dressage folder with all the tests were both missing 3 Advanced Medium dressage tests that are listed in the 2017 British Dressage Members Handbook as valid tests. It would obviously be a bit of a coincidence if they had both lost exactly the same test sheets so I have done a bit of digging. This has revealed that most of these Advanced Medium tests and other advanced tests are available as free downloads and do not need to be purchased from British Dressage.

Advanced Medium 85, 92 & 96

If you have purchased the British Dressage folder and believe that it contains all tests then I suspect that you will find that it does not include AM85, AM92 & AM96. After doing some digging I realised that this is because these tests are actually FEI tests. The British Dressage folder appears to only include British Dressage tests so the FEI tests are not included. You can order these FEI tests from the British Dressage website. These are not expensive but it is a bit frustrating when you thought you had bought all the tests when you purchased the folder.

All the FEI tests mentioned on this page are available as free downloads from the FEI Dressage Tests page:

For these Advanced Medium Tests scroll down the FEI Dressage Tests page to find the sub-heading Juniors. These FEI Junior tests are British Dressage Advanced Medium tests but the only problem is that the FEI website does not tell you the BD test number for each test. The 2017 British Dressage Members Handbook provides the following information on p124 to translate between British Dressage test numbers and FEI tests. To download the required Advanced Medium test from the FEI website you can either click on the appropriate link in the table or you can click on the correct FEI Junior test on the FEI Dressage Tests page.

If any of the download links in this table do not work then it is possible that the test has been updated and the FEI has changed the link. In which case go to the FEI Dressage Tests page and scroll down the page to find the sub-heading Junior and click on the link to download the required test.

The only problem is that the FEI test sheets have the FEI logo and test name as the title and not the British Dressage logo and Advanced Medium test number. I just write the British Dressage test number on a print out of the test.

PSG, Intermediate and Grand Prix

All of these tests are FEI tests and are available for free download from the FEI Dressage Tests page and are listed in the Seniors section at the top of the page. Alternatively click on the links in the table to download from the FEI website.

The British Dressage 2017 Rule book specifies that these tests use the version valid from 1st January 2016. However, the rules were published before FEI published the new versions valid from 1st January 2017. It makes no sense for British Dressage to use the 2016 version of these tests in the UK and for international competitors to go abroad and use the 2017 version. I believe that British Dressage will update the rules to use the 2017 version at some stage. The table below provides links to both the 2016 and 2017 versions.
