6Geometry and AccuracyCorrect size and shape of circles and turns66circles small in canter, seem flat in trot
31
Well matched pair with some nice moments. Adding energy and push from HQ will help horse come more through his back into a rounder frame. Work on activity and push from the HQ and consistency in bending. It will be easier to sit the canter when horse's back is rounder- work to develop a longer topline and softer back.
