We begin with a list of prescribed elements of Western Dressage tests, then ask you to show us something that lets your horse shine!
NAWD All-Around Freestyle Tests -- The all-around segment of the freestyle upholds the NAWD mission that: Classical Principles can help any horse become a better partner and improve his performance for any discipline.
All-Around (any discipline)" points will be awarded when riders demonstrate versatility by including movements or elements that are not included in Dressage or Western Dressage Tests.
Some examples may be: gaming patterns, reining moves, trail obstacles, cutting, cattle working, mounted shooting, carrying a flag, roping, garrocha, working equitation obstacles, etc. These are just a few examples.
Rider must submit written description of all-around elements for the judge to have on hand when scoring.
A maximum of 10 points may be awarded based on how well the horse and rider demonstrate rhythm/relaxation, connection, impulsion, straightness, and collection in their non-dressage performance.
A maximum of 10 points may be awarded based on creativity.
