WALK, TROT OR TÖLT
The rider may ride in either tölt or trot but not both. Try and ride in a light steady contact with the exception of free walk  where your horse should be ridden in a long rein with freedom to stretch and lower head. We are looking for regularity in the gaits and impulsion, ease of movement and acceptance of the aids, the rider should have a good position and use of the aids and remember to breathe and a smile will get you extra marks.Scale of marks is standard UK marking, see table below.  Where not specified continue in the gait you are in to the indicated marker for the next part of the test.
