Flying through the loops:
It's actually easy - just hit A everytime you fly through a loop. YOu will be automatically directed towards the next loop. So you need to do very little actual flying. When flying through a checkpoint loop, especially in normal and expert difficulty (when you have to hit two buttons at the same time), press the xbox guide button as soon as the screen says which two buttons to press. Then put fingers on the two buttons, press the guide button again and then hit the right combo easily. Press A occassionally to maintain speed. Not too much as your dragon might get tired.

Sheep shepherd:
To get gold in normal and expert, you will need to get all the sheep into the enclosure. Don't worry about whether the sheep is white or brown or dirty. The score doesn't matter. If you get all the sheep home, you'll get a bonus 500 points plus an extra 10 points for every second of the remaining time. Again, if you have trouble hitting the right button combo when catching the sheep, press the xbox guide button when you see the combo on the screen, put your fingers on the right buttons and there you go. In Expert difficulty it is quite important to maintain speed when flying. Be careful not to exceed the fatigue limit. It will slow your dragon down and you might not make it in time.

The torches
Very easy... what I did was just make up words from the As and Xs and Ys and Bs.... if the sequence was X-X-A-Y-X I just made a word in my head eks-zayks. This helps especially when the letters get scrambled in normal and expert. When I hit the buttons, I never looked on the screen, I just retyped the word I had in my mind. And if it gets hard, just pause the game and write the sequence down.

Dragon puzzle
This one was the hardest for me. It is a good idea to spend some time customizing your own dragon so you know what body parts there are. I even game them nicknames, like fish tail, and bat wings, and goat horns, and battering ram.... then when you see the dragon, you will remember better. The hardest thing for me was probably getting the color right in expert difficulty. But don't worry, I think there is quite a lot of tolerance. Just don't forget you choose the color AND adjust the brightness.

Final thoughts:
The xbox guide button IS YOUR FRIEND!
You don't need a high score. Just get what you need to get gold and then let the timer run out
