I am going to give a go at training level test 3, just to see what happens this weekend at the Shaggy Horse Schooling Show. In the "loop" (going from HXK and later MXF) how much bend should be done? My new trainer has me REALLY bending Cinny on those... as in more bend than following the shape of the loop. I am not trying to go against my trainer by any means, I adore her... I just want to make sure we are correct at the show.
Also, is the free walk portion (KXH) also to be bent. I've seen horses do it straight then turn and straight, and I've also seen them bend it like a loop. Which is correct?
Thanks so much
