We now see a lot more couples that reach above 80% on their dressage Grand-Prix, do you think the dressage tests need to be changed?

I think they need to bring out new tests across all levels which could be a challenge for some people
It depends, since there is so much more advanced training and new techniques these riders might just have had lots of experience and better trained horses that are bred for events like dressage??
I'll just think the horses are getting better. Thanks for the bredders who using so much energy to finding a good bloodlines.
Hi Molly,
Indeed, nowadays some couples make it feels like very easy. But the majority of the couples is still way under the 80% so I think if the test goes harder it will penalize those riders who still need to improve themselves to reach the top ranking.
Maybe some figures should have an upper coefficient...
Here's my opinion, I would love to hear other members opinion about it!
