- Revisit the Training Scale with further elaboration

- How to better prepare for/ perform a Dressage Test?

- Experience sharing  as a Rider and Dressage Judge

- Practical tips for competitors

- Illustration on most participated Dressage tests


As a competitor, we all dream of having our best day in the arena and having the colorful ribbon or trophy handed to us at the end of the day. Going to horse shows and competing can be a big motivational driver for continued training but should also be a positive experience for both yourself and your horse. Poor preparations may exacerbate stress and nerves on show day and usually results in an anxious horse and ultimately a less than optimal performance.

This is why planning ahead is so important. It gives you peace of mind and helps you feel relaxed and in control, which in turn helps your horse feel comfortable as well.  In this sharing session, Dr. Tong will guide us through the training scale for Dressage with further elaboration. He will not only illustrate some popular Dressage test diagrams, but will also provide you with some practical tips for a good preparation for a Dressage Test.

Interested members please fill in the google form at to complete the registration on or before 18:00 Thursday 21 January 2021. Details of the sharing session will be sent to successful applicants by email.

Please also feel free to share with us any suggestions or ideas for the upcoming online sessions by replying this email. We would love to receive your opinions to provide a variety of contents.

Thank you for your attention and we look forward to seeing you at the captioned session.

Best Regards,

Hong Kong Equestrian Federation
