this is a pretty horse and looks willing. Rider to get legs down and back under herself. then focus on avoiding leaning to turn. In this level get your equitation correct before you try to put the horse on the bit. Low wide hands pulling down affects many things adversely. get hands together just over the mane/neck almost touching and sit correctly ... keep your shoulders and seat level.
