    Supposedly we can post at 1st level. That would be so cool. Hope it's true.

    Just when I'm looking to move Beau up to 1st
    Sweeeeeet - I was not looking forward to sitting; he always wants to revert back to his little QH jog...

    Ooh, yey! I don't see the word "sitting" in the 1st level tests. Guess it's true. My horse had recently started doing lengthenings at the trot, but I just can't sit a TB's trot. Even when collected, it's painful!

    I totally need to memorize a few of the training ones just for practice.

    I have a question about stretchy circles. How much stretch are we talking about? Do the judges just look for long and low, or just enough stretch to where the horse reaches into the bit? My horses stretches equally forward and down. Hopefully that's correct.

    If you look at the USDF rule book, there are directives for every movement ;)



    Apparently in the next Horse and Hound there is an article about judging reform.
