── ⋆⋅☆⋅⋆ ──

Metre Line Basics

 

 

The Outside Track  ━ The dotted lines closest to the wall. 

 

Location of Arena Centre (X)  ━ The exact centre of the arena, where the A/C Midline and E/B Midline cross.


Cut Line  ━ Cut across the arena on the arena line called (Example: Cut Quarter Line).

── ⋆⋅☆⋅⋆ ──

Quadrants 

 

 

Arena Quadrants  ━ The arena has 8 quadrants total, running lengthwise from A to C, which is equal to the width of a 20m circle.

Circle Points

Each circle has 4 points, or “dots” on the arena floor that riders should aim to as they form their circle

5m Circle  ━ A circle that takes up a quarter of the arena, or is 2 quadrants wide. Each circle point is 1 quadrant or dot away from its centre.


 

10m Circle  ━ A circle that takes up half of the arena, or is 4 quadrants wide. Each circle point is 2 quadrants or dots away from its centre.


 

15m Circle  ━  A circle that takes up three quarters of the arena, or is 6 quadrants wide. Each circle point is 3 quadrants or dots away from its centre.


 

20m Circle  ━ A circle that takes up the width of the full arena or is 8 quadrants wide. Each circle point is 4 quadrants or dots away from its centre.

Metre System & Basic Shapes

Big Bear  ━ Ride a half moon from E/B, then a straight slanted line to the corner letter on the wall you originally came from. This will result in you riding the opposite direction.

Diagonal Half Eight ━ A half eight but once you hit the point on your circle before mid, ride diagonally through mid between the wide rein lines.

Eclipse ━ A quarter moon, then a half moon changing direction, then another quarter moon changing direction again, taking up the full width of the arena.

Full Moon  ━ Half of a 20m circle, then straight ahead. A half circle that takes up the full arena.

Full Eight ━ A large eight across the full arena, or two interconnected half eights.

Half Eight ━ Two interconnected half moons, each in opposite directions, traditionally starting and ending at E/B.

Half Moon ━ Half of a 10m circle, then straight ahead. A half circle that takes up half of the arena.

Hourglass ━ Split leads/lines heading towards each other on the long wall will angle in at corner letter to the 5m line. Leads then ride straight on the 5m line until they reach the next 5m point, where they will angle away from the other line to the letter on the opposite wall.

Quarter Half Eight  ━ Two interconnected quarter moons, each in opposite directions.

 

Quarter Moon  ━ Half of a 5m circle, then straight ahead. A half circle that takes up a quarter of the arena.
