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 #7559

2ImpulsionDesire to move forward with suppleness of the back and steady tempo.6.5213needs greater push from behind in upward trans walk to lope
32
3Rider’s Position, Seat, and HandsWell-balanced elastic seat demonstrating vertical, centered alignment, with light independent contact from hand(s)77
33
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 tests6.56.5careful of aligment in shoulder in and 1/2 pass
34
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 performance6.5213some bracing over topline in upward trans
35
Further Remarks: Work to develop a more supple topline so hind legs can step throught in shoulder in and transistions into lope. Keep hind legs active into thelope to walk transition for more level balance. Workman like team.
