Gaps & Alignment

Screen delay causes you to look one horse ahead (on your screen) of where you are to other riders. These are adaptations for that!

── ⋆⋅☆⋅⋆ ──


Halt NTT gaps: while halted, riders stand nose-to-tail.


Walk OT gaps: while walking, riders ride using overlapped tail gaps.


Trot ST gaps: while trotting, riders ride in saddles touching gaps.


Canter FI gaps: while cantering, riders ride fully inside the rider in front. 


Extended FI gaps: while riding the extended canter, riders ride fully inside the rider in front.


Gallop FI gaps: while galloping, riders ride fully inside the rider in front.

One Horse HH gaps: when riding one horse gaps in any gait, riders will ride with half a horse gap.

Other Alignments

Move Alignment  ━ When a ‘move set’ is called, riders must go on go and they will appear to start earlier than the rest of the line on their screen. 

Rein/Tier Alignment  ━ While in a rein or tier, ride one horse-length ahead of your partner.


Waterfall Alignment  ━ While in a rein (or after a waterfall), ride front hooves aligned with your partner across from you.

Slant Alignment  ━ After a slant set, ensure your front hooves and back hooves align with the horse in front of you (side by side).

Pinwheel Alignment  ━ All riders except those on the innermost circle will ride one horse ahead of the inside rider on their screen, using whichever gaits needed to maintain this.
