2019 Summer of Sport: Class I – Dressage with obstacles
Here we are using a standard arena 20m(66ft) by 40m (132ft) and the classical dressage letters to denote the position around the arena wall. The letter X is at the centre between E and B. Diagram is not to scale!
You may work on a halter and lead rope or at liberty. Usual rules about keeping the rope lose and maintaining a connection with your horse with a leading position between the eye and the shoulder if you work on a lead rope. A good idea is to walk through the pattern first without the horse! Each instruction (within the text boxes) is out of 10 marks. A good rhythm and crisp transitions will gain high marks.
