"Unicorn Waterfall" Dressage 2022 Results!

Our mystical unicorn-themed tests featuring a three-loop serpentine ‘waterfall’ are very popular and one of our favourites! All our tests are designed to 'layer up', but the “Unicorn Waterfall” ones do so especially well, so for those who find learning two tests is too complicated - these are the perfect ones to try.

One of the reasons the Unicorn Waterfall tests are so popular is because we invite all riders to embrace their wonderful ponies as the unicorns they are! This is always particularly loved by the girls – but fear not, the boy riders often get involved in their own way with mystical creatures – we have had brave knights, fearsome dragons, and this year even a winged Thestral-Unicorn ridden by Harry Potter!

For 2022 we introduced our *new* Harmony Awards: the ethos of Demi Dressage has always been to encourage kind and correct riding. Many riders will be rewarded for this simply in their placings: a harmonious test is more likely to score higher. However, there are times where we see a particularly pleasing test that might not necessarily be the highest scoring, but pony and rider are working well in partnership together, and that is what our new Harmony Awards are about.

This month we awarded one Harmony Award, to a Demi Dressage newcomer who rode two quiet tests – well done to Libby and Delta (Yellow and Yellow-Plus)

Results are published on the Demi Dressage Facebook page as they come in, but are posted here in class order for easy reference :)

Finishing up, we have the Blue results for the Unicorn Waterfall online dressage!

The standard was super-high for Blue this month! Everyone this month is a regular and all have shown awesome improvement and great scores!

Blue is a special class to Demi Dressage, providing a perfect 'introduction to canter' test with very simple canter movements to ease riders in to Prelim level without overwhelming them. This enables them to focus on riding the test as a whole, rather than just The Canter, and makes the step up to Prelim much easier.


1st - Freya and Eric - 76%

2nd - Eve and Alfie - 75.4%

3rd - India and Fliss - 73.8%

4th - Isaac and Robbie - 72.5%

6th - Lucy and Autumn - 65.8%

Winner of the Pony Passion special for Best Unicorn is India and Fliss!


And now for the first set of Unicorn Waterfall Results!

Apologies for not getting these up yesterday, I am finding I am still rather tired from the rehab following my op and obviously don't want to get any adding up wrong! So fresh eyes this morning and all that...

First up we have the Red results - for some reason this is always a small class in unicorn month, it is like Red riders are far too serious to play unicorns ;)


1st - Ffion and Rocky the Rockstar - 67.6%

2nd - Ffion and Popstar - 65.2%

3rd - Harriet and Daisy-Pony - 62.9%

Winner of the Pony Passion special for Best Unicorn is Ffion and Rocky the Rockstar!

All of the Best Unicorns have been put forward to the lovely Carly at Pony Passion for her to judge an overall Supreme Unicorn!

Our next event is the end-of-season "Back to School Squares" - these square-themed tests are one of our more challenging tests with more transitions and demanding greater accuracy. Perfect to put everything you have worked on over the summer to the test!

Schoolmasters and schoolmistresses are so important for young riders to learn on, and so we celebrate your veteran ponies this month, with a special rosette for the highest placed veteran (15+) in each class. There's also an extra-special rosette for the oldest pony who takes part, so if your horse/pony is 15 years or older, please do remember to mark their age on your entry to be eligible for these specials!

The "Back to School Squares" tests can be downloaded from the Current Event page, and the closing date is Sunday 4th September.

Our popular September Photo and Video Show is also coming up - the full schedule can be found on the Photo Show page, so start prepping those pics now!
