PURPOSE: To confirm that the horse demonstrates correct basics, and having achieved the thrust required in First Level, now accepts more weight on the hindquarters (collection); moves with an uphill tendency, especially in the medium gaits; and is reliably on the bit. A greater degree of straightness, bending, suppleness, throughness, balance and self-carriage is required than at First Level.JUDGE:Ida Norris

A lovely horse with a good start: focus on keeping hind legs under and more uphill balance throughout. Good luck and be safe!

Regarding your note on pregnant belly: No worries>> I don't tell many people but I rode while I was pregnant well towards the end even.. I didn't tell many people as they freak out but in those days I had to make a living and needed to keep going. I totally understand.. of course--- be safe.. In the last trimester I did badly pull my groin muscles as my doctores forgot to tell me my ligaments would stretch .. do be careful . Sending positive thoughts and energy to you during this special time! Ida Norris
