Do I have to memorize patterns?

Drill Teams

All Riders, but especially the Start - Finish - Riders at a Break in Formation absolutely MUST have the pattern memorized. If the pattern is not memorized, the synchronization will be off; and/or the coordination of sides or pairs will be lacking; the ability to adjust pace/speed in order to have the pattern flow smoothly and harmoniously will not exist; the ability to compensate for natural disturbances will not exist; therefore, MEMORIZE the pattern!
