Honest and willing horse. Potential for higher scores. Ride more energatically forward into a soft hand to create a longer and rounder topline and steadier connection. Rider tends to stand on her toes which throws her upper body forward rather than allowing the weight to sink down and use her core for balance both for herself and her horse. Work on developing a more secure position to help you keep horse balanced from side to side as well as back to front.
