• riders should pass left shoulder to left shoulder when on the track
• halt should not be on the track
• walk should not be on the track and does not have right of way
• trot has priority over walk
• canter has priority over trot
• when circling, anticipate your return to the track so as to not stop the flow of other riders
• mounting, dismounting and gear adjustment should be done off the track
• consideration should be given to behaviour of other horses in the arena that may upset your horse
• it may be necessary if your horse is upsetting others to leave the area
• if a horse is upsetting the majority, an Official should be sought with a view to requesting that horse’s removal
for safety’s sake
