My first clinic of 2011 at Marsha Hartford-Sapp's facility, Southern Oaks Equestrian Center, in Tallahassee, FL. In a Ride-A-Test the rider will warm-up and then ride their dressage test the same as they would in a dressage show. I judge the test and afterwards I go over the comments and scores with the rider and give them insight on how to improve. Each rider had unique struggles, but some recurring themes were: accuracy of the test movements, correct bending on circles, keeping the horse in a correct frame without getting behind the vertical, and correct angles in lateral work. We had riders from Introductory to Third level.
