LAUSANNE, Switzerland, Feb. 18–The Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) on Wednesday announced the launch of its first ever official mobile telephone application: dressage tests.

“FEI EquiTests,” developed in cooperation with Canada-based e-learning and visual communication design specialists Numen Communciations, Inc., is a mobile application designed to help riders learn, reference and practice FEI dressage tests.

“FEI EquiTests” is available worldwide through the Apple iTunes store under FEI license.

For each test, the application allows iPhone and iPod users to:

– read the test instructions along with the marking criteria;
– view dressage animation diagrams that outline the movements of the test;
– record and play readings of the test that are timed to match the user’s individual horses and the arena in which they are practicing;
– reference the official dressage test score sheet to see where the judges’ emphasis is;
– get better understanding of the FEI rules as PDFs of the rulebooks on topics such as movement definitions, competition rules, dress code, judging and veterinary inspection, and
– keep up-to-date with the latest dressage news through the FEI news feed.

FEI EquiTests 1 is available for free, so that riders and coaches may evaluate the features available. This application includes all features related to one sample test: the globally used FEI Young Riders Individual Competition Test.

FEI EquiTests 2 includes all the most recent 2009 FEI Eventing Dressage Tests and is available for only US$9.99 (€7.34).

Additional versions of FEI EquiTests featuring FEI Dressage and FEI Para-Equestrian Dressage tests will be launched later this year.
