Bluffers’ guide to dressage at WEG
On 14 September the best 30 individual combinations from the grand prix will contest the grand prix special, which is another set test. If there is a tie for 30th placed, all those combinations qualify.
If all four riders from one team qualify for the special, they are all permitted to take part. This test decides the first set of individual medals.
Finally, on 16 September, the best 15 riders from the special — including any tied for 15th place — contest the freestyle, or kür.
