The Area Festival elementary 53 challenge
Mark Ruddock has met fans of his Out and About Dressage test analyses all round the country when he has been out and about judging this summer. His latest analysis explores the difficulties for horse and rider represented by this year’s unrelenting Area Festival elementary 53 (2007) (and features images of riders performing the test at Hickstead, 17 August). No pressure, but you will see why he advises a lot of homework and test practice.
THIS NEW AREA FESTIVAL elementary test is a big step up from the 45 used last year, which doesn’t have any leg yields . . .

Out and About Dressage has become a Subscription Only service
The nearly 1,000 existing posts (as at July 2018) and future posts on Out and About Dressage represent a great deal of honest toil, often at 'unsocial' hours! As much fun as it is watching and photographing the action at shows and talking to riders — or however interesting it is learning about some new dressage relevant topic, bringing this information to website readers represents significant costs. For this reason the relaunched Out and About Dressage is available on subscription only.
