What is a Combined Test?
Usually, the two events are dressage and stadium because the most costly part of a horse trials is the cross country course.
Hence, your Combined Test score is the sum of the penalties from your dressage test and your stadium jumping round.
Here are the levels offered with the dressage tests and jumping heights.
* Intro - 2014 USEA Beginner Nov Dressage Test A (jumps at 2' max)
* Beginner Novice - 2014 USEA Beg Nov Dressage Test A (jumps at 2'6" max)
* Novice- 2014 USEA Novice Dressage Test A (jumps at (3' max)
* Training- 2014 USEA Training Dressage Test A (jumps at (3'3" max)
Dressage will be ridden in the indoor arena and the stadium jumping will be across the road and up the hill to the outdoor ring.

Order of Go
Intro first, then Beginner Novice, Novice, and Training.
This order gives competitors the opportunity to jump schooling rounds at the end of each division for an additional $15.
So if you had a sticky go at your level, you may want to go again at that level.
If you want to school at a higher level than you competed, have at it. The only thing you can't do is school a round before your competition round.
Start times will be posted after 9 pm on Wednesday May 10.
