Evaluation of movement:

Horses will be shown under saddle on a straight, two meters wide track and their movement will be evaluated on a marked, 25 meters long section of the track. Each horse will be presented three times in walk, three times in trot (in each case, the best performance will count), and once in canter – the goal is to show the most productive gaits. The parameters subject to evaluation will include length of stride (space) and style of movement.

Horse tack: a classical bridle with a bit; the jury may permit the use of a bitless bridle (sidepull, Cook´s bitless bridle) upon request. Double bridles, spurs, martingales or other types of auxiliary tack (draw rains, side reins, ….) shall not be allowed. Whips allowed.

Saddle – at the rider´s discretion (English, endurance, treeless, western, …) Rider´s gear: a helmet (mandatory), attire according to horse tack, rider´s footwear or safety stirrups.
