Checklist for a successful test
☐ Is your video in landscape and have you zoomed in to be 1/3 of the screen so the judge can see you?
☐ Check the YouTube link works and the video is set to unlisted or public.
☐ Have you introduced yourself, horse, test, month and DO?
☐ Do you know the test (are you riding the correct one for the class!?)
☐ Be accurate in riding the movements (so many marks are lost through inaccuracy)
☐ Make sure your postal address is correct on your entry.
☐ Wear gloves.
☐ Boots can be worn but no training aids - martingales etc.
☐ Record before the turn down the centre line and stop recording after the move off after the final halt.
☐ Don’t video into the sun and if it’s dark(ish) wear light clothing and light boots on the horse.
☐ Watch your video with your sheet when you get it back to see what the judge has commented on.
☐ Enjoy and smile!!!
