New USEF Equitation Tests

The previous USEF Tests from which judges could choose have been expanded to 22 and are listed in order of difficulty . A 23rd test that involves changing horse can be used only at championships. These tests are used in CHJA Specs for CHJA Medals and Medal Finals. Specs have been edited to reflect the new tests. Tests 1-8 may be used for Medals under 3’ and Tests 1-22 may be used for Medals over 3’. Test 23 may be used at Medal Finals for Medals over 3’.
