Intro A is walking and trotting, possibly a couple of 20m circles and a halt ... not totally sure myself!

This is Intro A from 2008, don't know if it changed this year. I've not yet done either, but I think A looks a bit harder than Intro B. All walk and trot though:

BD Introductory Test A (2008)


1: A Enter in working trot
Proceed down the centre line without halting
C Turn right


2: B Circle right 20 metres diameter


3: B Working trot
bet. B&F Transition to walk (1 horse length)
Proceed in working trot


4: E Half circle right 10 metres diameter to X
X Half circle left 10 metres diameter to B


5: bet. B&M Transition to walk (1 horse length)
Proceed in working trot


6: E Circle left 20 metres diameter


7: bet. K&A Transition to medium walk


8: FXH Change the rein at free walk on a long rein
(Double score)


9: H Medium walk
C Circle right 20 metres diameter
Bet. X&C Transition to working trot


10: MXK Change rein in working trot


11: A Down the centre line
X Medium walk


12: G Halt immobility salute
Leave the arena in walk on a long rein where appropriate
