Level Two focuses on the development of lateral movements, the extended and collected gaits, piaff/passage; collected & extended trot, extended walk, cantered pirouettes, and the development of 2, 3, 4 tempi, and finally, riding under the spotlights.

Level One  focuses on the basic gaits, straightness, 10 & 20 m circle, figure 8, rail work & simple lead changes.
