BN Test A question

In beginner novice test A, you pick up the canter after the trot circle between K & A. After that circle, do you go into that corner before transitioning to trot between F & B, or do you stay on the circle into F?

First show on Saturday. Just want to make sure I have the logistics nailed.

Stay on the circle. You complete your circle between F and B. Therefore, when you pass F you should still be on your circle!

Okay, thanks. It reads a little confusing. Logic tells me, if the circle starts at A, it ends at A, but I guess that's not the case with dressage tests.

Dressage tests are so confusing!

Tell me about it. I'm trying to learn Training Test 1 & 2 for a "regular" dressage show. The patterns are absolutely mind boggling. At least we're at the beginning of a decade and have the same ones for the next 10 years!

Thanks MIE. I did this test a few times last year, just having a brain fart about that one corner.

Just wait 10 gets better. Luckily horsey seems to know this test better than I do. Ran through it twice today and he was already anticipating on the 2nd run. Had to through in some extra circles and stuff to keep him guessing.
