Hi Janet,
The following is the definition of medium trot in the BC rules Medium Trot
Between the defined Working Trot and Extended Trot. The horse lengthens his
stride to cover less ground than asked for in the Extended Trot but more ground
than asked for in the Working Trot as a result of greater impulsion from the
hindquarters. The athlete allows the horse, remaining ‘on the bit’ without leaning
on it, to lengthen the frame to gain ground, with the nose slightly in front of the
vertical. The hind feet should over track the footprints made by the fore feet. The
horse must remain in balance while maintaining the same rhythm with strides of
equal size. Hurried strides are not asked for and constitute a severe fault.
Art 954 page 26 of the BC rulebook.
Hope that helps
James

We had a junior driver taking part driving Gypsy - a complete newcomer to driving although she has been to a few events with us as a helper. She absolutely loved it, and so did Gypsy! Great format - I love the way it is open to all-comers. Hopefully it will gain popularity as the season rolls on.

I had the pleasure of being involved today in the judging of these new classes at Hopetoun event.

They were fantastic fun. Very quick moving and competetive but allowed people to get a taste of the atmosphere at a National event.

Well done Hopetoun for organising.
