    Maybe Spyder meant F??

    All I know is my trainer likes to beat me if I mess up the corners on those things ;D M entry is okay, but you really want to make sure that when you hit the track at F you go real deep in the corner.

    My trainer says its okay to slow the trot slightly as you hit the corner.

    No, you don't want to "slow" the trot, that implies you want to change the tempo/rhythm. What you want to do is "shorten" the stride while maintaining the same rhythm. To shorten without affecting the rhythm, you will need to use plenty of leg while asking for the shorter stride. Otherwise, the horse will lose energy and might lose the rhythm.

    It is important to maintain the same rhythm and striding throughout the test.
