Would anyone here be able to help me with a question on
2nd level test 1?
I have a question on the test; movement #13 and #18.
The test reads:
#13 M-E Change Rein (at collected canter)
Between quarterline and E Simple Change of Rein.
My question is do they mean the three quarter line after I, so change between I and E?
Does anyone have a good video link to someone riding this test correctly?
Thank You.

Yes it is the quarterline after the centerline - if it was the other quarterline it would say simple change between m and quarterline or quarterline and centerline.

I just rode this test and had that discussion with my coach - obviously I rode it correctly as I received 7's for the movement.

This web site has a good video of all the tests being done correctly:

Yes- your change is between the quarterline and the rail- on the last 1/4 of your diagonal.

What everyone said is right. I too wish they would use Quarter line and Three Quarter line, it would be much clearer!:)

The trouble with that is that quarter line and three quarter line change depending on which direction you are going. As they aren't fixed, I think that would make it even more confusing!

So they need the B quater line and the E quarter line :)
