13. Reinback Obstacle
Rein back corridors should be either ground level (i.e. poles) or made in such a way that it is safe for the horse if the corridor is stepped on, over, or knocked down. This obstacle has the following variations:
<!--Straight - The horse and rider backs through a straight corridor.
<!--"L" - comprised of a corridor shaped like an "L". Competitor enters the corridor, rides to the end, halts, and then a rein back is executed back through the "L" shaped corridor.
<!--Slalom: comprised of 3 posts with a minimum distance of 3 meters between posts. The horse must perform a slalom backwards around the posts.
Young Horse in Hand: Walk in, halt, back out. Corridor only straight.
Novice: Walk in, halt, back out. Corridor only straight.
Preliminary: Walk in, halt, back out. Corridor straight, or "L".
Intermediate: Walk or trot in, halt, back out. Corridor according to course directions, straight, "L" or slalom.
Advanced: Walk or canter in, halt, back out according to course directions.
The attributes of the correct working horse and rider, and the way the horse enters and reins back. Knocking down any part of the obstacle will be severely penalized.
