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 #5479-1

Straightness; regularity and quality of the jog; willing, smooth transitions in and out of square, straight halt; immobility; willingness.661 meters or more to the left of the centerline-- look at A and the jump pole behind you.. you rode on a diagonal to get to x.. although you are straight and square at x.. your shoulders bulged left before you turned right

Circle right 10m, working jog

Working lope, right lead
Balance and bend on the circle; regularity and quality of jog and lope; willing, smooth transition.66nice geometry but horse braced topline against some of the bending aids and lifted his neck

Down centerline

Halt, salute
Balance and bend in the turn; straightness; regularity and quality of the jog; balance in transition to square, straight halt; immobility.66still to the left of the centerline . at the halt horse shoulders right and you can see A behind you so you know you are not on the line. . for WDAA tack check you need to go all around the horse and show us the tack from all sides. Thank you.

1GaitsFreedom and regularity77
32
2ImpulsionDesire to move forward with suppleness of the back and steady tempo.6.56.5 and suppleness of back in shortside and circles
33
3Rider’s Position, Seat, and HandsWell-balanced elastic seat demonstrating vertical, centered alignment, with light independent contact from hand(s)77elegant outline but more effective correct use of hand may facilitate bending aids
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 tests66accuracy and bending at this level really affected / also stretch circle requirements not addressed
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 performance7214horse looks generally willing . at this level accuracy effects free flowing performance and rider needs more sophistication in bending aids for the increasing bend required at this level.

Additional comments: Centerlines: You need to turn DIRECTLY onto the centerline.. not get onto it by the time you get to X... get your "eyes" on the ground to stand exactly behind C and be EXTREMELY clear with you.. they must cut you NO SLACK> you must turn directly on that line.. If you do they will not be able to see A and your horse will obscure the letter. .You must keep A directly behind your horse the whole way down the centerline.. and your horse must be linearly straight ie straight through the neck, shoulders, body etc.n . At this level being off the centerline by more than a meter is bad because theoretically this is an Introductory level skill ( centerlines started at Intro.. and you are now 3 levels up from that ). the higher up the test and test level the more harshly we look at this as it is considered a n INTRO SKILL. in the right canter circle: first half looks like an 8 but you leaned in and then had to "steer with the reins" and horse comes off the bit.. you need to begin to turn this horse more off your core/ using outside aids.. the outside thigh actually pushes the shoulder in and around a turn.. do not lean in to turn.. push a horse in on a circle to keep bend and engagement. Lower hands and closer together in the jog transitions may assist in horse staying in connection without lifting the neck. Traditionally the outside rein requests the neck lowering half halt. it is really unfortunate that the jog transition and the jog up the wall is one mark.. the transition is really affected.. but once the horse settles the jog up the wall could be an 8 .. however the ESSENCE of the movement is the transition.. therefore you must improve the transitions at this level. at the leg yield.. when you overshot the centerline you are inaccurate but additionally you make this movement easier for yourself ( hence the judge- when you overshoot the line takes up to one whole mark down before you even begin the movement.... ) The "free Jog Circle"... also known as the STRETCH circle... the point of this is to get the horse to stretch out and down over its back, to bascule its back and lift its shoulders and to improve the lift and stretch or th back and improve the quality of the jog. You must ask the horse to lift its trunk, stretch down and CHANGE its connection. No change was visible really today. when circling there comes a point in most of the circles in the second half of the circle where you use the inside rein to "steer" to finish the circle.. and the horse comes off the bit. it is the outside rein and outside aids which keep a horse on the bit .. and if you can set the head with the outside rein on the circle that is the most correct aid... You have an elegant outline and a lovely horse... Loads of potential ... so accuracy and attention to tranistions and details will be rewarding! Good Luck!
