this is avery pretty horse and very tolerant. this rider could use some work OFF the horse on balance issues. strict attention should be paid to keeping weight in both stirrups, avoid leaning to turn and after improving balance concentrate on more elastic arms. Get the thigh and leg back and down under the rider, toes to be more parallel to the horse and leg more correctly on the horse and under the rider. many balance exercises off the horse can help a rider develope "balance".
