What is Dressage to Music?

This is a fun competition that anyone can try. You ride a dressage test along to music. The test has to include walk, trot and canter on both reins but you can choose what order to put them in.

You are given marks out of ten for each movement like in a normal dressage competition. Extra marks out of ten are given for how interesting your test is and how well the music goes with it.

Dressage to music can be done in pairs too. Marks out of ten are given by the judge for how well the ponies perform the test together. It helps to have two ponies that are similar sizes.

You can download the different tests further down this page.
