PURPOSE: To confirm that the horse demonstrates correct basics, and in addition to the requirements of Training Level, has developed the thrust to achieve improved balance and throughness and to maintain a more consistent contact with the bit. All trot work may be ridden sitting or rising, unless stated.JUDGE: Ida Norris

What a beautiful horse and good gaits! Loads of talent! rider does not appear to be chiropractically level or even today. right shoulder and hip up and forward in both directions sometimes in the way of bending for lateral work. both have potential.. get level and even and review requirements for bend for lateral movements. good luck!
