Memorize a Prix Caprilli Test
I've been working on memorizing my prix caprilli dressage test for this Saturday's show at Triple Creek with Highboy. A prix caprilli test is a dressage test with some jumps in it. This one is longer than anything I've done with him so far in competition, with lots more canter work.
I have to memorize the test because if I have someone call it out to me while I'm riding I get distracted and have trouble focusing on my horse and riding the actual movements. There are lots of ways to memorize a test, and since it's that time of year again here is an older blog post describing some ways to get the pattern to stick in your head.
