Dressage & Cones Fun Day at Cypress Keep! 
A Florida Whips Event

Saturday, August 1, 2013
DRESSAGE: Pick your favorite dressage test (anything for a 40x80 arena) and practice.  See a choice of tests below.  You will receive a scored test with commentary and a chance to repeat. Dressage tests are reserved by time slot.  You can then proceed directly to cones if you wish, which are open all day (except for lunch).

CONES:  Pick-A-Test Pleasure cones will allow you to drive pleasure cones in any of the following ways as many times as you wish (depending on number of competitors):
 - Timed Cones Pleasure  - go through all ten cones in numerical order as fast as possible without cantering
 - Fault and Out - drive through the 10 numbered obstacles where you drive as many obstacles as possible in two minutes or until you knock down a ball
- Pick Your Route - choose the most efficient route for you to go through all ten cones in any order and in any direction as quickly as possible without cantering. 
 - My Route Your Route - Drive the ten cones in numerical order, and after completing #10, without passing through start/finish, choose the most efficient route to drive all 10 obstacles in any sequence and any direction until passing through the finish gate.
- Reverse Psychology - Drive through 10 cones in numerical order, and then drive backwards through the ten cones in reverse order and in the opposite direction to return to the start line.
