The loops on my tests go from HXK and MXF. I'm going straight from H tot he quartertrack and then changing bend around X, then on the quartertrack I should have proper bend again before I get to K? I'm more of a XC rider....lol, Dressage baffles me sometimes.

Well, as Anabel had said, often people will change the flexion at the quarterline before and after X.

Say you are going left, you leave the track at M and make go straight while still maintaing the left flexion. At the quarterline, move it over to the right flexion. As you near X, increase the bend go through X and continue with a lesser flexion. At the quarterline, heading towards F, change the flexion and continue on.

Edit: I didn't see Anabel's post :)
