The International Equestrian Federation (FEI) has uploaded the new FEI level dressage tests which will become effective as of 1 January 2014. Two brand new "medium tour" tests have been instated and a minor change has been made to the Grand Prix and Special test, which has major repercussions for the sport. For the small tour no changes were made so the Prix St Georges and Intermediaire I remain intact. The FEI is proud to post the two brand new "Medium Tour" tests, which should bridge the gap between Intermediaire I level and Grand Prix level. As many horses do not have the absolute talent to do a Grand Prix, or are still green and inexperienced at the highest level, the medium will provide a solution.
