This test is designed to demonstrate the balance and posture required during the training of the ridden horse. Movements such as shoulder-in may be substituted by shoulder-fore or some inside bend to make it achievable for younger and/or less established horses/riders.
Marks will not be awarded for the individual movements of the test but will be awarded for the general impression of the test, the skill and tact of the rider and way of going of the horse. Particular importance will be attached to the flow of the test rather than the accuracy. The willingness and responsiveness of the horse will be duly rewarded.

The first impression mark will be awarded in the first 30 seconds and the final impression at the end.
Comments and constructive feedback will be given along with suggestions for future work to help improve marks.

For ANY breed of horse 4 years old and over .
To be performed in a bridle (bitted or bitless) or cavesson and saddle or bareback/pad if it is safe to do so. A whip may be carried as an extension to help refine the aids.
