Dressage test help please!
1 Attachment(s)

I am having some trouble figuring out this dressage test. It is Horse Council BC First Level Test 1. I have attached the test and a diagram that I drew which I am pretty sure is the correct way to do the test. Please correct me if I am wrong!

Here is the color code for the diagram:

Free walk-orange
Trot- blue
Lengthened trot-red

The - through a line means halt, and the * means salute.

Here is the link to the test:


Sorry if the diagram is hard to read, but it is only the first row that I need help on.(the middle two on the top row)

Are you asking what that loop is? Make a 1/2 circle from E to X, then return to the track ay H.

I was wondering if how I drew the half circle is the correct way to ride it.

The second one is better - the half circle is far more circular. Just remember to ride the circle part as a circle, and then return to the track in a straight line.

He he. I'm dreadful at drawing circles and straight lines, but I'm pretty good at riding them. ;)
Alright, thanks for clearing that up.
