State meet Western (Stock) Seat pattern clarification: Q: In elements 4 and 5, the written description states to do the haunch turn in the center of the circles, but it is drawn showing it before the center. Which is it? A: The haunch turn should be done in the center of the circles. A drawn diagram of a pattern that incorporates circles and a haunch turn within the circles will have the turn offset from the circles in the drawn portion. This allows the rider to see that there is a haunch turn required, but all turn(s) should be done in the center of the circles.
