FEI Tests

FEI tests are available for free download from the FEI website



At international competitions regulated by the FEI, riders and horses are expected to perform the following tests:

  • FEI Children (Team and Individual Tests for riders age 12 - 14)
  • FEI Pony (Team, Individual and Freestyle Tests for riders age 12 - 16) 
  • FEI Junior (Team, Individual and Freestyle Tests for riders age 14 - 18) 
  • FEI Young Rider (Team, Individual and Freestyle Tests for riders age 16 - 21)
  • Prix St-Georges (of medium standard)
  • Intermediate 1 (of relatively advanced standard)
  • Intermediate 2 (of advanced standard)
  • Grand Prix is a highly demanding five-and-a-half-minute test requiring all of the basic schooling movements plus the fundamental airs of the Classical High School, including pirouettes (pivots on the spot at a prescribed gait), piaffe, passage and flying lead changes.
  • Grand Prix Special is a seven minute test requiring the same movements as the Grand Prix but in a different order and with increased focus on the more advanced movements
  • Grand Prix Freestyle (Kür) is performed to the accompaniment of a musical score. Most of the marks, based on purity of action, rhythm and regularity, impulsion and collection, are for technical performance.
    Some of the most spectacular Dressage performances occur during the Grand Prix Freestyle (Kür) which is performed to the accompaniment of a musical score, often tailor-made for the performance. Freestyle is the pinnacle of Dressage execution and when it works, the result is magic.
