Enter working trot rising.

Halt through medium walk.
Salute - Proceed working trot rising.
Straightness on centerline and in transitions; clear trot and walk rhythm.6.56.5Please NO MUSIC>>> it is annoying . Keep in mind it does not match your horse so it does not augment your program. natural sound is a required part of judging you. we want to hear the horses footfalls, breathing etc. Please we need your camera to be placed directly behind C.. your scores may not be as accurate or as high as you would like because we are unable to do our best evaluating you . Ask your camera man to be directly at C and we will enjoy the natural sounds of you and your horse . :):) Not sure if your centerline is on the centerline or even straight due to the camera situation .. if your camera was at C then you veered off...
