Walk/Trot Rules and Courses

Preparatory (walk) Novice (trot) Rules

 

The Preparatory Class is done at the walk, there is no time limit, but the horse must NOT stop (halt).  If this happens then no points will be awarded for that run. The competitor is NOT disqualified and points from other runs will count to their overall score. Should the horse move up to trot or canter, the scores will still count. However, keep in mind, this category is for those who are not ready to compete at the faster grades, and if a competitor is felt to be more advanced than this grade they will be eliminated.

 

The Intermediate Class is done at the trot. There is no time limit however the horse can NOT go into walk or halt. If this happens then  points will not be awarded for that run. If the horse should break into a canter, this is OK and points scored will be allowed. Should the horse go down to walk or halt during a run the competitor is NOT disqualified and points from other runs will count towards their overall scores. However, keep in mind, this category is for those who are not ready to compete in the Advanced (canter) class
