All trot work may be ridden sitting or rising, unless stated.JUDGE:Aviva Nebesky

Capable pair but horse needs to be allowed to come more through the back to better swing and sit on the HQ for lengthenings. Maintain straightness in leg yields don't allow horse to trail HQ or puysh through outside shoulder. Horse needs to be better on the HQ in downward transitions.
