PURPOSE: To confirm that the horse demonstrates correct basics, and in addition to the requirements of Training Level, has developed the thrust to achieve improved balance and throughness and to maintain a more consistent contact with the bit. All trot work may be ridden sitting or rising, unless stated.JUDGEIda Norris

4K-EShoulder-in rightAngle, bend and balance; engagement and quality of trot66began correctly : then TOO MUCH INSIDE REIN , pulled neck to inside and then got too wide , causes loss of collection/bal

16
6E-HTravers rightAngle, bend and balance; engagement and quality of trot6.56.5shows some displacement ( needs more bend.. specifically poll more clearly to right and flexion around the inside leg at ribcage and shoulders ( rider collapse over left rib cage affects bending) , wide braced hands in short side at C/some counterbend at C-M

K
Change rein, medium trot

Collected trot
Moderate lengthening of frame and stride with engagement, elasticity, suspension, straightness and uphill balance77horse shows some real talent.. rider takes an occasional posting step. ( this may be marked down.. beware!!!). Need to get core and seat more correctly soft for this talented horse, chair seat and rider behind vertical not helping rider ssit this talented horse

8K-A-F(Transitions M and K) Collected trotClear, balanced transitions; regularity and quality of trot; consistent tempo6.5213rider improperly leans in on short side to make the turns , and collapses over her5 left rib cage. weight not centered and needs improved turning aids. Horse loses collection and gets onto inside shoulder while rider leans.

9F-BShoulder-in leftAngle, bend and balance; engagement and quality of trot6.56.5BEGAN WELL : then loses outside aids = then loses bend and it becomes wide... rider leaning left puts horse on 4hand
20
10BCircle left 10mRegularity and quality of trot; shape and size of circle; bend; balance66\horse falls out around the circle and hind legs fall out as rider collapse over left rib cage/ locks outside aids to ride the circle IN which would equal engagement

2ImpulsionDesire to move forward; elasticity of the steps; suppleness of the back; engagement of the hindquarters6.5213engagement especially in trot negatively affected by riders lack of balance/ horse needs to be more correctly tracking with hind legs around circles, short sides etc)
43
3SubmissionWilling cooperation; harmony; attention and confidence; acceptance of bit and aids; straightness; lightness of forehand and ease of movements6.5213this is a very willing horse, with a lot of talent. lack of straightness today coupled with rider imbalance affected bend, collection and ease of movements
44
4Rider’s Position and SeatAlignment; posture; stability; weight placement; following mechanics of the gaits66clear chair seat negatively affects horse especially in the trot tour . ( rider needs thigh back and lower leg under herself to improve her own balance and ability to give clear bend and collection aids. ) , rider often behind vertical/ seat pushes saddle DOWN onto the horse shoulders. work for hands closer together( more triangulated rather than parallel) with bend in the elbow and elastic forearms
45
5Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsClarity; subtlety; independence; accuracy of test66work to improved balanced and correct equitation to improve collection and bending aids for this horse . lots of potential in this team!
46
this remarkable horse appears very talented and this team appears harmonious, showing clear ppeparation for this test. Attention to correcting your balance , equitation and arm elasticity will help you progress more correctly through the coming levels.
