Comparison of dressage levels in UK, US and DK

Dressage levelsJeg har haft virkelig mange problemer med at oversætte mine dressurklasser på engelsk korrekt, for det hedder ikke LA, MB og så videre i resten af verden. Derfor har jeg researchet som en gal og fundet frem til, hvilke klasser, der svarer til hvad i USA og England. Både for jeres skyld – og min egen.

It’s so confusing when I write about the dressage levels because their names vary from country to country. And the tests in each level do to. I have done a little (okay – big) research and discovered how the levels compare… For your sake – and mine!

I have found an example of a class, Advanced medium, 3th level test 1 and MB0, from the three countries so you can see how they relate.
