Domino  ━ Leader stops, and everyone will drift to the direction called and halt next to the person in front of them with their back hooves aligned with front hooves.

 

Flock  ━ Leader stops, all other riders will drift in a right/left pattern to halt with their horse’s back hooves in line with the front hooves of the horse in front of them, with rider boots brushing.

 

NTT Flat  ━ Line leader halts and everyone will drift in a right/left pattern to halt side by side, front hooves aligned.
 

Slant Flat  ━ Line leader halts at a slant (45 degree angle) and everyone following will halt (brushing boots) at the same angle, resulting in a slanted NTT Flat.

Halt & Exit Moves

 

 

Action ━ From a halted formation, all riders trot on go to maintain their current formation while moving (For example: All riders trot on go from an arrow to create an action arrow). 

 

Braid ━ From a single halted line in at least HH gaps, the rider at the back of the line will cut right and weave in and out of the riders in front of them, and then halt at the front of the line. This pattern may be repeated with multiple go’s for more than one rider. 

 

Drop Off ━ From a comb, odds hard stop on the first go and evens hard stop on the second go.

 

Erose  ━ In a side-by-side halted waterfall, on go the back line will walk curl in the direction called then halt in line with the line in front. On the same go the front line of the waterfall will do a full pivot in the opposite direction called.

 

Lollypop ━ From split lines halted in waterfall facing towards each other, on the first go odds will trot forward. On the second go, odds curl over around their partner. Evens automatically begin to trot behind their partner. This results in couples. 

 

Loop ━ While in a horse length gap halt, the lead will ride a tight circle around the halted riders and all riders will automatically join behind them in order.

 

Pass Exit ━ The lead will ride past the riders, in front of the halt formation, and all other riders will automatically join behind them in the original line order.

 

Steel ━ From a single halted line in at least HH gaps, the rider at the back of the line will cut right and weave in and out of the riders in front of them, each rider joining the line in OT gaps as soon as they are passed. This results in a reversed line order.


Trot Set SO (Same Order) ━ Riders exit a halted formation by trotting forward one at a time into their original line order.
