I'm just starting to study my tests for next year, Training test 1 is fine, but TT2 I'm going to have to work at a bit more, for example, this loop, MXF, ridden at trot, optional sitting or rising.
So, to start off with it's obvious, ride the loop, OK, got that, but from this drawing, and please excuse my drawing skills, but yes this is as good as it gets
Question 1, is the way I have drawn the movement basically correct, a shallow bend to X and back to F, but obviously coming in a bit shallower to F because that is a tight bend as I drew it.
Question 2. The little blue curves show how I presume the horse will be bent at M X and F, but is it bend, straight, bend, straight bend, and if not when where and how does the bend change.
Question 3 If you decide to rise, I presume that you don't have to change the diagonal at all, LOL it will be a bit like a counter trot
I think that's it for now, and yes I will be going through it with my trainer, but I thought it would be a good one for discussion here, thanks.
