PURPOSE: Tests confirm that the horse is supple and moves freely forward in a clear steady rhythm, accepting light contact with the bit. The horse demonstrates greater understanding of the aids and calm acceptance of the bridle; greater emphasis is placed on relaxation, harmony, rideability and pure gaits. The horse is beginning to develop more impulsion and balance.JUDGE:Janice Mumford

Circle left 20m, working jog

Develop working lope, left lead
Balance and bend on circle; regularity and quality of the jog; willing, smooth transition; regularity and quality of the lope.55unsteady connection in job,against hand counter bent in lope

set up 4 cones to mark your circle (centerlines and rails). Next at each cone ride a 10m circle to confirm bend the ride to the next cone and repeat at each cone. Once you horse is willing bending do a 10m circle at every other cone. Once the bending aids are confirmed at the jog try this next exercise. Jog a 10m at a cone then pick up al lope directly out of the circle. Jog at the next cone doing a 10m circle. Jog around until you are back at the orginial 10m circle repeat the circle and then lope out. Once you can lope in balance 1/4 of the circle continue to a 1/2 circle.
