Out here you can do either or for first level. After that, sitting trot.

I wsa always taught that you warm your horse up, and then you work in sitting trot (unless its a green horse and rising is therefore easier to train in).

You must do the rising trot at Intro as per the test requirements.

My mistake. I normally don't look at the intro movements since we went right into T1.

Is it frowned apon to do a mix? So say I start in the rising trot but feel for one reason or another that sitting would be more effective is it ok to change it up? I've always picked what I thought would be best and stuck to it and I don't think I've actually seen anyone sit and rise in one test where it was optional, unless obviously otherwise stated such as an above example of 20m circle at rising trot allowing the horse to stretch.

Rosie I have no idea but I think you should pick your best trot for the dressage test if there is a choice.

I've never seen it in writing that one has to stick to one type of trot position throughout the test (except for mandatory changes).

I would think that such may reflect negatively on your collective marks for rider effectiveness. Why, I don't know. It's just a hunch.

Hm interesting, that's pretty much what I thought. I can't wrap my head around why it would be considered negative exactly. There have definitely been times when I've been riding a test and thought **** that would have been better if I'd sat/posted that movement but I've never tested the theory to find out what the judges think. It would be interesting to know just how much they would knock you, that way I could decide whether or not its worth it to take the hit at the end while potentially getting a better score on that movement or end of the test ect.

Well rosie I'm just going to say that a test needs to be consistent. Posting for some and sitting for others.. unless told to do so is not consistency.

Though you'd think a "test" they'd want to see both sitting and posting?

Sounds like a good experiment for a schooling show. For a rated show, I'd pick one or the other.

So when you re entering the arena at A and you halt at X, when your trotting there you should be rising is what you guys are saying? And then I can sit after that Except for when I'm circling and "encouraging the horse to stretch forward and downward")?
