From the USDF’s desk – New as of 2015: It has been determined that as of the 2015 Regional Championship Program year, the Intermediate B test will no longer be used as a qualifying test for the Great American/USDF Regional Championships. The Intermediate II test will be the only test used to qualify for the Intermediate II level of the Great American/USDF Regional Championships. The test to be ridden at the 2016 Regional Championships and US Dressage Finals will be the Intermediate II test.
