When do you Track Left or Right in a Dressage Test?

Track Left or Right in Dressage TestFritz’s human, Una, here. I don’t know about you, but I used to have a hard time remembering if I needed to track left or right in a dressage test.

Did you know there is an easy way to remember if you need to track left or right after your entrance halt/salute?

There is!

Any odd numbered test, you will track left. Any even numbered test you will track right. (Obviously this changes in the FEI levels since most of the tests don’t have versions).

So for example

Training Level 1; track left.

Training Level 2; track right.

Training Level 3; track left.

First Level 1; track left.

First Level 2; track right.

Etc.
