AIRC 2010 Tests
The tests used by AIRC in 2010 national competitions use a mixture of tests from British Dressage, British Eventing and AIRC with tests from one or two other organisations too. The fact that AIRC has a good selection of tests available to all appears to have been overlooked - perhaps the event organisers for the Riding Club Festival, the Horse Trials, or the Dressage Championships have technical reasons for not using AIRC tests. The knock on effect of this is that other club shows around the country are then having to follow the pattern if riders want to practice their grade test at local shows.
Note: Photocopying copyright protected tests is against the law and the 'Paddy-the-pig' mentality of "Ara sure that doesn't apply to me" doesn't cover you. Not only are the test sheets protected but the score sheets used by the judges are also protected. In some cases tests/score sheets are being used that the source organisation doesn't supply any more, either because they have been corrected in a later edition or they have been dropped by that organisation altogether. Note also that shopping around at the different sites above can produce different results where sometimes the cost of postage is the biggest factor.
