This RC has been Withdrawn by the CDC 21Sept2016
This Proposal is RECOMMENDED by the Combined Driving Committee. This Proposal is RECOMMENDED by the Dressage Committee.
Rule/Article: CD 950.2
Proponent: Combined Driving Committee
Date: posted 1June2016
950.2 At CAI Events a smaller arena, measuring 80m x 40m and laid out in accordance with the Annexes, may be used for all classes of Singles and Pairs, in which case the loops of the serpentine must be reduced from five to three.
At ADS-recognized events, the size of the arena to be used shall be as stipulated on the applicable Driven Dressage test. VSE classes may be driven in large or small full size arenas of Annex 1, 2, 3 [delete
4], or in the following size-adjusted arenas: Tests requiring 40m x 80m arenas may be driven in [delete 20m x 40m or] 30m x 60m arenas; and tests requiring 40m x 100m arenas may be driven in [delete 20m x 50m or] 30m x 75m arenas. Driven figures shall be reduced in proportion to the size-adjusted arenas. Diagrams and letter placement are published in Combined Driving Appendix F. The Omnibus must indicate the size of arena to be used.
Reason for Change:
1) The 20×40 arena size has not proven to be appropriate for VSEs to properly show their dressage test movements.
2) The 20×40 arena size is not being used by event organizers in the U.S.
Also affected by this change are references in Article 518.1, and listing in Appendix CD-F
