FEI Discontinues Grand Prix "A" Dressage Test

USA Equestrian has received official notification from the Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI) to immediately discontinue use of the 2003 FEI Grand Prix Version “A” Dressage Test. The FEI Executive Board approved this decision during their meeting on June 11. Please note as of that date, all international dressage competitions (CDIs) will only use the “B” version of the Grand Prix test.

On the national level, the USA Equestrian Dressage Committee voted this week to recommend all USA Equestrian-recognized competitions immediately discontinue use of the Grand Prix “A”. This change will be mandatory for all competitions as of September 1, 2003.

For competitions which have previously purchased quantities of the Grand Prix “A” Test, USA Equestrian is offering to exchange version “A” score sheets for the “B” test at no cost to competitions. A Grand Prix Test Exchange Form is available on the Federation website, or by calling the Tests & Booklets department at (859) 258-2472. Please note this Exchange Form must accompany all Grand Prix “A” tests to be exchanged.

For more information, please contact Jennifer Keeler, Sport Manager, Dressage, (859) 258-2472 or jkeeler@equestrian.org.
