Level 2-Intermediate Level: This is considered an established Partnership. The rider and Horse are familiar with one another, exhibit trust when negotiating obsacles are conditioned to ride a longer course. 

Level 3-Masters Level:  This is considered a Partnership where Horse and rider have established trust, can negotiate difficult obstacles and are conditioned for a longer course.
