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 #5103-1
