    The idea in stretchy circle is for the horse to stretch down while maintaining an arch in their neck - meaning horse is stepping undernath itself and is in self carriage - not falling on it's forehand.

    I have a question. If in a test (for example first level test two) it doesn't say sitting trot can you still sit the trot? I've been working really hard lately to get Jesse to use his hind end and I find that I can drive it better during a sitting trot. Because, it seems that I get more impulsion from behind (especially when lengthening the stride) while I'm sitting.\

    Edit: Do the changes apply to Canada as well?

    EC usually adopts USEF tests, yes. I don't know when they would go into effect up there.

    On the directives it says "all trot may be ridden rising or sitting, unless stated". So if it says "working trot" you can do either. If it says "working trot - rising" or "working trot - sitting", you must do that.
    That's good that your seat is strong enough to do that - I find the same thing.

    I checked the Dressage Canada website and they have posted the new tests as well.
