Each year, Glass-Ed proudly hosts its annual Dressage Fest. The most unique feature of this dressage schooling show is the optional written quiz. Free to all competitors, the quiz is available online in the weeks leading up to the show, and scores earned are converted into extra credit points toward the show High Point Champion and Reserve Champion awards for each level and division. Four quizzes are available into total, including Introductory, Training Level, First Level & Above, and Western Dressage, and questions increase in difficulty as the corresponding test level increases.
One of Glass-Ed’s primary goals is to provide educational opportunities, and these quizzes offer an excellent opportunity for members to review rules and dressage show etiquette. While each competitors may only submit the quiz once, there is no time limit for completion and are all open-book, with the answers to each question coming directly from the USEF Rule Book, the Glass-Ed Rule Book, the Glass-Ed Member Guide and the dressage test sheets.
Questions, answers and references for all quizzes are provided below. Or, to try your hand at the quizzes before next year, visit http://glass-ed.com/dressagefest.
