32
4Rider’s Position and SeatKeeping in balance with the horse66Arched back--leans back. Heels need to come more under hips. Toes out. Arms braced.
33
5Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsCorrect bend and preparation of transitions66Aids need to create more balance and develop bend. Rider overuses seat, which causes the horse to hollow back and reduces the amount of reach that horse gives in walk steps.
34
Although you might have hoped for a higher score--and who doesn't? The point here is that you can improve the scores quite a bit by working on your balance and creating lighter aids. The goal is to allow the horse to go more freely with a rounded topline.
