Training Level Test 4

Okay, so I am riding in a show in a couple of weeks, and I am planning on doing training level test 4- it is suggested that we go down a level because since I am riding one of the lesson horses, and you don't know who you are going to ride until the day of the show. Anyway, I am going to do training level 4, and it all looks pretty simple except for the 'one loop' that comes up occasionally. Can someone explain to me what this is exactly? It would really help me out. Thanks in advance!

One loop


These are done at working trot so if you follow the letters it is simply a "bump" in the trot movement. So instead on trotting straight down the side of the arena you will after passing through the "M" or "F" letters (movement 2 and 8) you will arc towards "X" then return to the same side you left. Make sure the horses shoulder passes through the "M" or "F" both in leaving the letter and upon returning to the letter.

Well - here's a vid of my horse and I doing our first dressage test together, under our first instructor together.

I look back at it, and it really is not that great. I as the rider could of done, so much better - but here is Training Level Test 4.

By the way, have they changed the test since 2007? I can't find a more recent version of it on the internet, and I want to try and memorize it by Saturday. I definitely don't want to memorize an incorrect version of the test, so if you can give me a link to the 2009 test (if they have changed it) that would really help. Thanks!

This rider did this test just a few weeks ago. The conditions were not ideal but she trooped through.

nope, if you have the 2007 one, you've got the right test
