    Dressage test help please!

    Hi,

    I am having some trouble figuring out this dressage test. It is Horse Council BC First Level Test 1. I have attached the test and a diagram that I drew which I am pretty sure is the correct way to do the test. Please correct me if I am wrong!

    Here is the color code for the diagram:

    Walk-black
    Free walk-orange
    Trot- blue
    Lengthened trot-red
    Canter-green

    The - through a line means halt, and the * means salute.

    Here is the link to the test: http://www.saskhorse.ca/Competitions...LevelTest1.pdf


    Thanks!


    P.S.
    Sorry if the diagram is hard to read, but it is only the first row that I need help on.(the middle two on the top row)

    Are you asking what that loop is? Make a 1/2 circle from E to X, then return to the track ay H.

    I was wondering if how I drew the half circle is the correct way to ride it.

    The second one is better - the half circle is far more circular. Just remember to ride the circle part as a circle, and then return to the track in a straight line.

    He he. I'm dreadful at drawing circles and straight lines, but I'm pretty good at riding them. ;)
    Alright, thanks for clearing that up.
