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.RIDER #6110-1

EXTRA FEEDBACK

Overall Impression: Well presented test showing harmony. Confident rider.

High Points: Smooth transitions.

Low Points: Straightness to aids in leg yields and 1/2 turns.

Focus: Keeping horse straighter to aids and not restricting on inside rein in leg yields.

Exercises: 1) For Turns on forehand: Always keep a forward feeling from your leg aids. If the horse wants to step back, practice the turn one step at a time. You can even do a quarter turn and then reverse the turn to come back to your start point using the opposite aids. Most important to remember is that the horse should be straight to your aids and not overbend from your active leg. That's why it's so important for the outside aids to be supportive during the turn .

2) For leg yields: If your horse allows its haunches to trail in the leg yield, it's probably due to the fact that it wants to lead too much with its outside shoulder. Use your outside leg, at the girth, to keep the shoulder from leading too much. Half halts on the outside rein may help, too. Be sure you don't use your inside rein to "create a bend". The horse should be straight in the leg yield. You can also practice supporting outside aids by doing a leg yield to the quarter line, and then back to the long side--so the horse doesn't anticipate and lead too much with shoulders on the forehand.
