Competitor Tent Virtual Test Rider Instructions

Recording your test:

Perform test(s) and record video from “C” (rides recorded from anywhere but C may be rejected and not scored).

Record with your phone held horizontally for optimal recording.

Zoom in if possible on the horse and rider when they are at the far end of the ring, and at the near end, be sure to keep the horse and horse’s legs in view.

Minimum 720p video quality recommended.

Ring should measure as close to 20×60 or 20×40 meters as possible.

Appropriate dressage letters around the ring are required.

Each video submission should be of one test and each test must be recorded non-stop. Tests must not have been previously judged.
