RC#: 19-022
Status: Posted 6Jun18, Recommended by CDC & ESC 19July18

Name: Marc Johnson / CDC Chair
ADS #: 9050
Subject: VSE arena size
Rule #: CD-F
Current Wording: Diagrams for 20 x 50, 20 x 40, 30 x 75, 30 x 60 dressage arenas
New Wording: Delete diagrams for 20 x 50 and 20 x 40.
Reason for Change: The arenas do not drive well, particularly the 20 x 40 and these sizes are infrequently used, from what we can see in the Omnibus. Our feedback from VSE competitors is that they do not like them. 
Type of change: Modify

    I would be hesitant to remove 20 x 40. We have used it several times. It combines easily with a 40 x 80 arena. Also, as some facilities it is available as ridden dressage arena. It also speeds up the VSE competition compared to the 30 x 60 areana.

    I think Dorenbach has a valid reason in relating to the ridden dressage ring size

    Not supported. There is no reason not to leave the option of the 20 x 40. It works in some situations, even if not as often as the 30 x 60.
