    My yard is having a christmas show with DTM. BUt the schedule only says prelim to novice level. What sort of movements would need to be in the test.

    I'd ask YO but she's just had an operation and I dont want to bother her too much :)

    For Freestyle - Prelim - medium walk, working trot, working canter, free walk on a long rein, 20 m circles on left / right rein, changes of the rein.- -i think

    Novice - medium walk, working trot, some medium strides in trot on both reins, working canter, 15 m circle on left /right rein, free walk on a long rein, salute at beg and end of test.

    I know the Novice one is correct as I have just competed in a BD freestyle compeition- these are the elements you must show within the test and will be marked on, but the design (choreography is upto you, so you could include serpentines etc if you wanted)

    Hope that helps

    There are BD prelim and intro freestyle tests now - you can purchase them on-line from BD and usually arrive next day.
