BD Intro Test A 2008 (walk and trot)

Hi, does anyone know the sequence of this test please? I'm sort of thinking I might be able to do it (but it would be my first ever )

Yes, but I'm not sure I'm supposed to reproduce it here? Can I?

It's not difficult. Just practice 20m and 10m circles on both reins in trot and walk, trot-walk-trot transitions, free walk on the long rein you need to give enough rein to allow your horse to stretch as far as possible while keeping a consistent contact ie. don't just chuck down the reins and push him/her on to overtrack - double points for the free walk - and a nice square halt.

The most complicated it gets is a half 10m circle right at E to X followed by a half 10m circle left at X to B followed immediately by a transition to walk after B for 3-7 strides. The rest is just 20m circles and changing the rein across the diagonal.

Thank you Laura. I found a website where I could buy the 'sequence' from. So I can practice it in my lessons!
