really appreciate your nice turn out .. thank you!! Lots and lots of transitions should improve response for this rider. this test appears slightly more forward, round and accurate than the Intro A.. this developing rider has potential and looks to be gaining confidence. if the horse is fit enough and sound for it an occasional lunge lesson where the instructor can help get the horse more forward for the rider and rider work on the aids with close supervision can at times be helpful.. this is often dependent on the horse ( of course) .
