The skills introduced at First Level have also remained unchanged:
- For Test 1: 10-meter half circle at trot; 15-meter circle in canter; and lengthening of stride in trot and canter.
- For Test 2: Leg yield.
- For Test 3: 10-meter circle at trot; change of lead through trot; and counter canter.
I am taking Speedy to a schooling show this weekend, and we'll be using the old tests. I wasn't planning on riding Test 2, but due to a change in plans, I will now be riding first Level Test 1 and 2 … Heaven help us as I haven't even read Test 2. Nothing like jumping right in!
Look over the new tests and let me know what has changed, especially at Second Level. Who knows? I might get there sooner than I think!
