Roundness of circle.||6.5||6.5||use some zoom ( horse should be in the last 1/3 of the landscape frame to show 2 letters ahead of her and horse should fill screen to about 1/3 size .. this helps you with how much zoom :):) camera would be better placed a bit closer to C // shoulders and poll need to flex to the inside and rider maintain weight in outside stirrup on circle / needs steadier connection|

|6.5||2||13||I can see you trying to get the poll below the withers... Keep trying.. now he has to stretch to it and stop bobbing... :):) keep going!|
Change rein, working trot.
|Quality of trot. Straightness on diagonal.||5||5||POSSIBLY FORGOT THE TEST??? WALKED FOR A BIT NEAR F.. needs steadier connection on the diagonal horse porpoising|
|12||Btw C&H||Working canter, left|

|3||Submission||Attention, confidence, ease of the movements, acceptance of the bit, lightness of forehand||6||2||12|
|4||Rider||Position and seat. Correctness and effect of the aids.||6.5||2||13||effect- needs rounder and steadier connection.. needs clearer bend both directions but left is more problematic|
|Further Remarks:I can see that you read your papers and are working hard!!! keep pushing yourself to get your legs back.. left one especially as it is the weakest. this is a lovely horse that needs to give in the jaw and poll in order to be reliably rounder to the bridle and be willing to be steadier in the reins.. think about your arms being very very close together ( nearly touching) and 4 arms triangulate . think about keeping them elastic, soft, mushiy.. whatever you need to say to yourself to keep them in place and elastic. You can do it.. I see improvement! what is holding you back from a 70% is centerline accuracy and you need STEADY frame/connection.|
