2023 WDAA Test Changes

Effective Dec 1, 2022 WDAA has revised the eight 2022 Dressage Seat  Equitation tests. The 2022 tests are replace with six 2023 Western Dressage Seat Equitation Tests - Walk-jog Tests A,B, Intermediate Tests A,B, and Advanced Tests A,B, for both riders and judges.  The judges test diagrams are reversed to correspond to the judges perspective.  The new tests are valid until November 30, 2025.

Note:  These new WDAA tests are title changes of the old tests with a couple of added words.  The judges tests have reversed diagrams.  Riders can easily convert the old tests in their Dressage Illustrated books to the new tests with a pen.   

Dressage Illustrated will be providing inserts from Instructors and Judges diagram books under the Order Books and Audios > Updates page.  

2023 FEI Test Changes

FEI has released most the old Para Equestrian tests under new titles and added a couple of new tests.  The collective marks have been reduced to one mark which changes the test scores.  Dressage Illustrated will NOT produce diagram books for these new tests due to absolutely no demand for them in the past.   

NOTE: The current FEI books for sale are labeled 2021 because that is the last year the diagrams changed.  Changes since then have been minor and involved scoring.  They did not affect the diagrams.
