Dressage Walk Trot Canter Equitation

I just submitted my entries for our first show coming up on May 1st. This is considered a "warm up show", and is what Canadians call the Bronze level, or schooling level. This is a warm up for national level competition later that month, and for the rest of the summer.

There are two technical tests that I will be riding, Training level tests 1 and 3 I believe. After speaking to a few people, I figured it was probably smart to do a warm up class prior to the two technical classes just to get the cobwebs out of my system.

The only class that made sense was walk trot canter equitation. I have never done an equitation class before. The entry form states there is a maximum of 6 in the ring at the same time. I understand that equitation is rider focused. Can someone help me understand what to expect in the ring with this class?

Consider it much like a hunter hack class ( except looking for a dressage oriented look). The overall impression will be judged. So all gaits, transitions and rider ability will be considered.

It is possible the judge may ask for an individual ride covering just about anything at the lower levels.

^Agreed. However, I've noticed that sometimes they will ask for a walk-canter transition and sitting trot.
