62% for a training level or intro test is a very respectable score; you should be very proud of that one. 46 or 48 is not unreasonable for a horse and or rider new to the sport, or a test with a disobedience, like a spook.

I'm also very glad you had judges who wrote lots of comments, sometimes it is absolutely worth the price of competing to get that kind of feedback.

Kayty,

Part of the reason for that is that there's a difference in the cumulative marks for Intro tests and for Pony Club. Movement and gaits are a 1, and rider's position are a 3. I think it's a great change, because it takes away part of the advantage of the fancy horse and puts the emphasis on the rider and the test.

However, I take your point - scores on these tests don't exactly correlate to scores at USDF competition at training and above.
