PURPOSE: Level 3 tests confirm that the horse has achieved the impulsion required in level 2, accepts more weight on the hindquarters (collection); moves with a greater uphill tendency as required in the collected gaits, especially in the collected lope. The movements should be performed with greater straightness, bending, suppleness, balance and self-carriage than in Level 2.RIDER #5185

1GaitsFreedom and regularity77Lope needs to be more elastic and free.
32
2ImpulsionDesire to move forward with suppleness of the back and steady tempo.7214At times, energy could be more uphill.
33
3Rider’s Position, Seat, and HandsWell-balanced elastic seat demonstrating vertical, centered alignment, with light independent contact from hand(s)88
34
4Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsEvidenced by the horse's responsiveness; steady elastic connection cultivating athletic expression. Accuracy - precise placement of the figures and transitions, the effectiveness of the rider's aids determines the accurate fulfillment of the required movements of the tests77Horse balances on reins, especially left rein. Seat and weight need to encourage more self carriage.
35
5HarmonyThe horse accepts the aids and influence of the rider with attention, relaxation and confidence; and demonstrates a willing partnership between horse and rider resulting in a free flowing performance7.5215Lope needs to flow more freely.
36
Lovely Horse! Work to achieve more lightness to aids, especially in lope.
