neat horse and good working team!! thank you for this nice turnout! Fairly steady test showing good basics and a lot of harmony. Work now for more elastic rounder connection and smoother transitions.

POINTS:109additional things to think about: make every salute and halt an 8 or better.. they take some work to perfect but are super for the horse and rider.. they are your first and last impression and it is 2!!!! scores.... this team looks comfortable so I would encourage you to explore working on getting rounder to the bridle and being just a bit more forward for brilliance. the weak must not slow down when you go to free walk.. PUSH the horse forward to the resins as opposed to dropping the reins and the horse slows down behind the leg and rein.
