Three properly attired competitors must complete the class. A competitor has completed the class when all of the gaits required have been executed and the rider remains in the ring until the class has lined up. In addition to Walk, Trot and Canter, the class may include halt and back, hand gallop, counter canter, no stirrups, lengthening of stride, turn on the forehand from the halt, and turn on the haunches from the walk. Gaits may be required in both directions of the ring.
