It’s finally here! British Dressage is proud to launch the digital app a number of riders and trainers have been waiting for. We’ve teamed up with Lion Dogs, creators of the Dressage TestPro app series, to bring you all our tests from Intro to Advanced on your mobile device for the most advanced test learning experience available. 

As well as the convenience of having your tests easily accessible without Wi-Fi or 4G connection, the BD Dressage TestPro app actively helps you learn your test – whatever style suits you. You can listen, follow or draw your way around your chosen test to get to grips with your test route. The straight-forward, easy to use format caters for users of all ages and abilities. 

British Dressage Chief Executive Jason Brautigam commented; “It’s really exciting to bring this new app to the market as part of the Dressage TestPro app series. Our members have been asking for a number of years and now they’ll have our tests easily accessible, completely portable and always up to date. Thanks to the Lion Dogs team for their support and drive to make it happen and I hope members will soon find this to be a great new feature in their competition kit.”

View the test just as you would on paper with the PDF viewer. This handy feature allows you to become familiar with the sheet from the judges point of view. Know your double marks, collectives and directives inside out to maximise on your time in the arena. 

For the more technology-savvy, try the draw feature to test your knowledge. TestPro’s with you on-screen, every step of the way to let you know if you’re on track…or heading slightly astray! This interactive way of learning is suitable for any standard of phone-user – if drawing isn’t quite your style, simply tap the screen and TestPro will draw each movement for you so you can watch the test play from start to finish. 

There’s also a function to hear your test – play, pause, rewind and fast forward to navigate through the movements until you’re ready to trot down the centre line. Plug in your headphones or listen out loud and choose your ideal settings to start learning!

Lion Dogs co-founder Tracy-Anne Ormrod said “We are delighted to bring a British Dressage version of TestPro to the market. In collaboration with BD we have enhanced TestPro to produce an App that we feel will be an essential part of dressage life. We are looking forward to providing dressage riders with further technology in the future to support them to be the best that they can be. “
Head over to the App store on iPhone or iPad to download a free trial and access any BD test for a limited amount of time. After you’ve had a go and seen the magic for yourself, you can subscribe for as little as 9p per test per month.
