DRESSAGE AREA GROUPS
JOIN YOUR LOCAL DRESSAGE GROUP
Your local dressage group (Area Group or branch- refer to pages 5 -7 for
contacts) is responsible for providing competitions for all levels of riders from
Training (new riders and horses) through to Grand Prix. These Area Groups have
a representative on the National Dressage Committee (Area Delegate). The
National Committee and area groups work together to schedule qualifiers for
National Events, recruit and train judges and technical officials, and encourage
new members to the sport. By joining your local group, you can also have an
input into the future of your sport at area and national level. Area Group
newsletters often include schedules for local events. Contact and join your local
dressage group – find out what opportunities are provided in your area.
Every area group relies on local membership to provide quality competition and
training opportunities - please join up now
All–In–Flex
Judges & Volunteers
Accolades for Involvement Awards
Saskia Ostermeier and Betty Brown from All-in-Flex have both been in the sport
for many years and recognise the huge contribution made by Judges and
Volunteers so vital to the existence of our sport. At many events there are nearly
as many judges and volunteers as there are competitors when it’s all added up
Dressage currently has an annual Volunteer of the Year Award and Area awards
for all nominees. Judges are nominated by area groups for the annual Judge of
the Year Award
The All-In-Flex aim is for an increase in area group awareness and recognition of
the contribution that these two groups make to the sport and their goal to have
EVERY area group nominate both a Judge and a Volunteer
So All-In-Flex have committed to provide product prizes and a special memento
for ALL 20 nominees in both Judge and Volunteer categories for 2015
National Winners will each receive twelve months supply, and Area Winners
three months supply of All-In-Flex Hominis.
Dressage and All-In-Flex look forward to being able to recognise this group of
special supporters of dressage.
Nomination Forms will be available on the website, and nominations
will be called for in February 2015.

GUIDELINES TO THE DRESSAGE RULES
The following selected rules and guidelines are not intended to replace
the need to read the official rule books but are useful reminders of
some of the common competitions topics & rules that riders need to be
familiar with. These are only some extracts from the rules and it is
important to check the appropriate complete rule if a query or conflict
arises and understand the full wording of the rule in the correct context.
The Article (ART) refers to the rule and the book to look in. (DR =
Dressage, ESNZ = General Regs)
These are not all the rules for
Dressage Events and therefore riders cannot use these limited extracts
to claim lack of knowledge if they are found to be non compliant.

DRESSAGE COMPETITIONS
Dressage has 20 Area Groups located throughout New Zealand. These Area
Groups organise local, regional and national competitions throughout the year.
Dressage competition is also provided by ESNZ affiliated and member
organisations. The North and South Island Championships, the Prydes Easifeed
FEI World Dressage Challenge, the Bates National Championships and the
Farmlands
Horse of the Year Show are all key events.
Competitions are based on a national system of horse grading & rider category.
The levels become progressively more difficult thus testing the progress of horse
and rider. Rider categories are based on rider experience
Dressage Tests follow a set pattern of movements that the horse and rider must
complete in an arena, usually 60 x 20m. Letters are placed at precise points
around the arena which define where the movements must be performed. Each
test is judged by one or more judges who score every movement. Score sheets
are then given a percentage score and placings are determined by highest
percentage.
Reference Art DR 460.1
Horse / Pony Grades. A horse/pony moves from one grade to the next once a
predetermined number of points are accumulated. Inexperienced riders may,
under certain conditions as per Rule ART 464, downgrade more experienced
horses to use as schoolmasters. Refer to Rule Book for FULL details and more
guidelines page 18 of this Year Book .
Grading Points are allocated based on the % gained in each test.
These points are recorded on the Equestrian Sports NZ horse database
57 - 59.99% = 1pt;
63 - 66.99% = 5 pts;
HORSE/PONY GRADE

DRESSAGE RIDER CATEGORIES
DRESSAGE RIDER CATEGORIES EXPLAINED
Reference Art DR 463.7
A national standard of DRESSAGE rider categories has been implemented. Rider
categories have nothing to do with the level or grading points of a horse, but just
the points gained in a particular level by the rider ON ANY HORSE AT ANY TIME .
Why did Dressage NZ do this? It gives the sport a chance to offer classes
defined by rider experience. For example Organisers can offer a Level 1 Test 1.1
( old name preliminary) class restricted to CN and C1 riders, and then another
class, Level 1 Test 1.1 for riders C2 and above , so that an experienced rider
doesn’t compete on a lower graded horse against an inexperienced rider on a
lower graded horse.
This does not mean that experienced riders can never bring out their young
horses at Level 1. It does mean that more experienced riders will not be able to
enter classes offered to a lower category of riders
Dressage Rider Categories
Category N
(CN) Newcomers. For riders who have never earned grading
points at any Level
Category 1
(C1) For riders who have never earned grading points at any level
above Level 1
Category 2
(C2) For riders who have never earned grading points at any level
above Level 2 and riders who have ridden at ESNZ Novice
Horse Trials
Category 3
(C3) For riders who have never earned grading points at any level
above Level 3 and riders who have ridden at ESNZ
Intermediate Horse Trials

competed, but not below Level 2. Once registered as downgraded the
horse/pony will not be allowed to compete at all in Island, National
Championship event, or other event /series/class specified by DNZ, for
twelve months regardless of points gained or level ridden. This applies
regardless of ownership or any rider.
Only the approved rider may compete the horse at the downgraded
level. If the horse/pony is competed by any other rider, the horse/pony
automatically reverts to having its original points and the downgraded
status is revoked . Before a new rider can compete on the horse/pony
at any level lower than its original grade, the process of downgrading
must recommence.

19
Warm Up Arena Etiquette
Sometimes, surviving the warm up arena can be more
difficult than getting through your test! l Busy periods
require “arena etiquette” to ensure everyone has a safe,
stress-free warm up. Here are some guidelines to keep in
mind next time you find yourself in the warm up arena.
LOOK UP !
Many riders are so focused on their own horse – watching their neck and
head – they forget to look around. Awareness of other horses and riders
around you is crucial if you want to avoid accidents (or the odd word of
abuse!). Does your horse need brake lights? Don’t stop suddenly without
being aware of who is behind you. If you need to stop to adjust equipment or
dismount, move to the centre of the warm up arena or exit the warm up
arena. If you do accidentally happen to cut someone off or force them to halt,
quick “sorry!” is polite.
LUNGING
Try to stay as far as possible from other horses if you’re lunging. Keep to the
outskirts of the warm up area, or the designated lunging area if one exists.
COACHING/LESSONS
If a coach is warming you up, make sure they are standing on the edge of the
area, not in the middle. Make sure your coach is discrete! Shouting across
the arena may provide others with a free lesson, but they may not appreciate
it at the time!
KEEP YOUR VOICE DOWN!
Remember that the sounds you may make (clicking, growling or whatever!)
may help your horse, but may not help another rider whose horse may not
react the same way.
LEFT SHOULDER TO LEFT SHOULDER
When you and another rider are approaching head on, stay on the “right side
of the road”, with your left shoulder toward the approaching rider’s left
shoulder. If you’re walking or doing slow work, keep to the inside
track/centre of the arena.
KEEPING A DISTANCE
In a busy warm up arena, it’s difficult to do, but try to avoid riding too close to
another horse. Particularly when passing from behind; the horse you are
passing may feel threatened and decide to kick or panic and run off. Many
horses get upset when another horse crowds its space. Just use your
common sense – don’t ride up another horse’s rear end don’t pass too close
– we’re not playing dodgem cars!
MISBEHAVING HORSES
If your horse is having “behavioural problems”, please move to the edge of
the arena so as not to upset other horses. Likewise, if you see another horse
misbehaving, stay away and if you have to ride near it, do so quietly. If a rider
falls off or there is a loose horse, you should halt until the situation is under
control. A horse may be requested to leave the warm up area by a steward if
it is considered it’s behaviour is disruptive to other combinations.
RIDE IN YOUR DESIGNATED WARM UP AREA IF THERE IS ONE
Check if the show has designated any particular area for your level and or for
lunging
20
BE CONSIDERATE OF OTHERS AT ALL TIMES
Everyone has equal right in the warm up area. FEI and junior riders alike.
Always give way if a collision is likely – even if you’re in the “right”. Everyone
has special “needs” so please bear the following in mind
 Juniors and beginners – less experienced, may not have much control
over there mount, may be intimidated by other riders. Be aware they may
unknowingly get in the way, please show some tolerance.
 Young/green horses – inexperienced, easily upset by other horses. Ride
quietly around them and keep your distance.
 FEI riders - lower level riders must be aware of an upper level rider who
is practicing a movement – they are expected to have more precision and
their movements are more complicated. Let them complete the movement by
giving them a little extra space. Lateral work always has right of way.
NO GALLOPING !
Above all, use your common sense and make it a safe environment for
everyone to enjoy.
SADDLERY – BITS - BRIDLES
Ref DR Art 478.9 Saddlery that is not permitted to be used on the
grounds at any time are
Bit guards, any kind of gadgets (such as bearing, side, running or
balancing reins etc), any form of blinkers including hoods & shadow

bridle.

COVERS are permitted in TRAINING & COMPETITION These should be
discreetly coloured and must not cover the horse’s eyes If Ear Covers
are worn stewards will check for ear plugs these at the completion of
the test.
NOSE NETS May be used in Training & Competition but must be
discreet and must not cover the horse’s mouth
** SADDLE COVERS are only permitted in extreme wet weather
conditions and only when the TD and/or OC have also given permission

require a horse/pony (s) to be ridden in an FEI test under NZ rules
for dressage in a simple double bridle where the FEI test would
require this if the test was ridden under FEI rules for dressage.
When a horse/pony is to compete in a test that allows only a snaffle
bridle to be used, a double bridle is not allowed to be used in the warm
up for that test.
BITS Ref DR Art 478
Dressage NZ does not approve “brands” of bits, but “types” of bits. If

PENALTY POINTS & ELIMINATION
EXPLANATION ART 451 – Errors of Course and Test
If the rider turns the wrong way, forgets where they are going etc it is a
“course error” and marked accordingly. If they make an “error of the test” –
rise instead of sit, do not hold the reins and whip in one hand at the salute
etc then it is marked exactly the same – a “course error”. The course error
box at the bottom of the sheet will be ticked in the same way as for an actual
deviation of the course.
In fairness to riders it is suggested the bell should be rung for any course
error to give them the chance not to repeat the fault should they be likely to
do so, for example at the initial halt and salute.
If the rider rises when they should be sitting at the trot, the bell SHOULD be
rung, a course error given, and the rider should then perform the movement
again for a mark as in a normal deviation of course error.
However, ART 451 says a Judge may decide when a rider makes an “error
of test”, for example transition/pirouette eg at V instead of K, not to ring the
bell, BUT the rider will still incur a “course error”. In that example the rider will
get the course error, but the original movement can be fairly marked as the
transition/pirouette etc can be marked as if it was in the correct place. If the
bell has not been rung but a course error penalty has been given and the
rider makes the same mistake when the same movement is repeated on the
opposite rein, then they cannot be given another “course error”. Of course in
this situation if the bell has been rung the first time, then the rider WILL incur
another course error.

Created in collaboration with Adelinde Cornellisen, this
model bears the signature of the Dutch star (twice winner of
the World Cup and a silver medalist at the Olympics in
London 2012). Tested for long periods by the champion who
gave her name and other important professional riders, this
saddle proves its excellence by greatly improving the gait of
the horse and the seat of the rider. With movable knee
blocks, this saddle can be customised to suit the rider's
individual riding requirements. The tree has been specially
designed to all more freedom for the shoulders, especially
the trapezius muscles. All Erreplus saddles have specially
designed dips in the seat padding under the pelvis and seat
bones to give the rider greater comfort and the front of the
seat is rounder and softer to increase the support the rider
feels. The panels are short and flocked and the gullet sized
can be easily adjusted by your Erreplus dealer to whatever
size you need.
