Dressage test help please!


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:

Free walk-orange
Trot- blue
Lengthened trot-red

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

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


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.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

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.
