    This is a good suggestion for visualization, as you really need be looking all the way around that turn toward X and the judge. I also like to plan to ride it as half of a 9.5 meter circle instead of half of a 10m circle. If I undershoot by a little, then a teensy step of legyield gets us right where we need to be and actually helps me get my wiggle-worm-gelding truly straight. But if I overshoot, it means I've let my horse blow through my outside aids and then we're SOL.

    Check out Walter Zettl's book for some good center line tips (and a lot more brilliant stuff).

    Default Go straight

    Actually halt at X. Not somewhere kind of near X.

    First test, no caller. Halted somewhere, no where near X and I have no idea why. Show nerves.

    Second test, caller. She said "I'm standing at X" her call went like this "Halt at XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX!"

    Duh.
