Advanced riders please note: 5.2 Clarification

Advanced riders pl. note: 5.2 Clarification.

Movement 14: KX on diagonal

                        Near X Develop very collected canter working half pirouette right approx 2 metres

                        Proceed collected canter

Movement 18: HX on diagonal

                        Near X Develop very collected canter working half pirouette left approx 2 metres

                        Proceed collected canter

The movement is quite clear it says ‘KX’ and ‘HX’ – near the centre line would be between KX and HX – not beyond X. It is expected that for the highest mark it must be at or before X.

If the rider crosses the centre line by more than 1 metre this will be considered an error of course.  Given that it is a mirror image movement the bell should be sounded and the rider advised so as to avoid it happening the next time.
