Consists of an exact sequence of movements ridden in an enclosed arena. The test is judged by one or more judges who are looking for balance, rhythm, suppleness, and most importantly, obedience of the horse and its harmony with the rider.
This phase consists of approximately 30–40 obsticles placed on a long outdoor circuit. Speed is also a factor, with the rider required to cross the finish line within a certain time frame (optimum time). Crossing the finish line after the optimum time results in penalties for each second over.
