PURPOSE: Tests provide an introduction to the discipline of Western Dressage; the horse performs only at the walk and jog. The rider should demonstrate correct basic position, use of basic aids, and understanding of the figures. The horse should show relaxation; and harmony between horse and rider is important. The horse accepts the aids and influence of the rider. The jog should be a natural gait within the horse's scope and should demonstrate a swinging back.RIDER #7248-2

What a beautiful and remarkable horse with a quiet rider! I really like this horse... today's concern is that the walk is not clear in rhythm and the irregularity of jog ( both together) MAY indicate discomfort. check horse for ( soundness-comfort). Your test riding and geometry was good but losing gait quality is a very very large mark down in competition.. be sure horse is really sound/comfortable and then ask for active jog and work on clear 4 beat walk, jog to be more regular. good luck...
