Heading to Port Royal on Saturday for their arena ODE and it is help under BE rules. My horse is normally ridden in a grackle noseband day to day and when jumping/hunting/xc and goes very well in it, however, we haven't ventured into the world of Dressage or eventing (yet) so my question is - Must he be in a cavesson noseband for the dressage part or can he compete in a grackle under BE dressage rules? (I know they differ slightly from BD)

Thank you - any info would be hugely appreciated...

Also, has anyone don this at Port Royal before? Any tips for remembering the long sj/xc course? I've watched a few vids and it seems to go on foreverrrr! x
