Dressage scoring explained by Cesar Torrente No 2.

FACT: If during the collected walk a horse shows a completely lateral pace or if the horse is trotting instead of walking during the movement.

QUESTION: What technical mark should you give?

PROPOSE ACTION: Taking into consideration that a clear rhythm is in the base of the Training Pyramid and that we must always look for the purity of the gates, and the walk is a 4 beat gate, if a horse shows  a full lateral walk (ambling)  or if the horse is jogging (trotting -2 beat),  considering that 5 is insufficient, the technical mark should be below 5.
