1A

C
Enter working trot

Track left
Straightness of entry; regularity and quality of trot; balance and bend on turn88very straight on CL, balanced in turn, active strides. there isn't really anything to do to improve this score!! Maybe a slightly slower tempo would help with the balance through the turn
10
2E Circle left 20 meters, working trotQuality and regularity of trot; bend, balance, size and shape of circle77keeping the horse more consistent in the connection and with the neck long will improve this score- I can see you asking him to reach out to your hand rather than curling a little behind the vertical where I suspect he wants to be
11
3A - CSerpentine of two loops working trotQuality and regularity of trot; shape and size of loops; changed of bend, balance77slight bracing in change of bend- first half was very supple and correct, you stayed straight a little too long across the CL which caused the second loop to be less curved- this is a very difficult movement to ride well but try to ride it as 2 20m 1/2 circles- only 2 or 3 strides of straightness as you cross X and then immediately the feeling of not riding into the corner of your circle. I like that you changed your posting diagonal well before the change of bend so that your balance/connection stayed more steady but your horse was a little reluctant to change the bend. Try to imagine riding this movement a little like using the handlebars of a bicycle so that you give room in the new outside rein for the horse to stretch without getting tight- you can gradually take the rein back to the correct connection as you ride through the circle
12
4BCircle right, 20 meters working trotQuality and regularity of trot; bend, balance, size and shape of circle77again, a little loss of balance in neck so falls behind vertical- try slowing the tempo with a slower posting rhythm and taller core so that the horse needs to "sit" and work a little harder behind which should help with the balance
13
5Between F and AMedium walkWilling, calm transition; regularity and quality of walk77fluid transition but after A, nice march. walking before A would have brought this score to a 7.5
14
6K-X-MFree walkRegularity and quality of walk; with reach and ground cover allowing complete freedom to stretch the neck forward and downward77a little slow to truly stretch out into the hand then lovely- if horse will take rein forward more quickly- do it! your FW can easily become an 8
15
7Approaching M

M - C
Develop medium walk

Medium walk
Willing, calm transition; regularity and quality of walk6.56.5needs rounder frame while gathering reins- tends to brace a little and hollow rather than lifting back and reaching into the hand
16
8CWorking trotWilling, calm transition; regularity and quality of gaits6.56.5again- a little against hand in transition rather than lifting back and pushing under with HQ
17
9E - B

Between centerline and B
Half circle left 20 meters working trot

Working canter left lead
Willing, calm transition; regularity and quality of gait; size and shape of figure77patient riding, nicely on aid, could atay rounder through transition with more push from hind leg
18
10BCircle left 20 metersRegularity and quality of canter; bend, balance, size and shape of circle88nicely uphill and through the back, scopey and ground covering
19
11Between B and MWorking trotWilling, calm transition; regularity and quality of gaits6.56.5prepare better with 1/2 halts so that horse stays on the hind end into the transition rather than falling onto shoulders and running to catch balance
20
12H - X - FChange rein, working trotStraightness; regularity and quality of trot; bend on turns88balanced and through
21
13E - B

Between centerline and B
Half circle right 20 meters working trot

Working canter right lead
Willing, calm transition; regularity and quality of gaits; size and shape of figure6.56.5nicely forward but loses throughness and head up in transitions, try to think about riding horse almost as if it is leg yield so the you push him a bit sideways and keeping him stretchig more through the outside shoulder in the transition
22
14BCircle right 20 metersRegularity and quality of canter; bend, balance, size and shape of circle88nicely balanced and uphill
23
15Between B and FWorking trotWilling, calm transition; regularity and quality of trot6.56.5better in the balance this direction and obedient but still not sitting- use half halts and collect before actually asking for transition so horse has time to balance better
24
16ADown centerlineBalance on turn; straightness; regularity and quality of trot88straight and balanced
25
17XHalt, SaluteWilling, calm transition; straight, attentive halt; immobile (min 3 seconds)88fewer walk steps would increase this score
26
Leave arena in free walk. Exit at A.
