Talented pair with some lovely quality basics. Be careful to create honest bend and not just bend in neck- this is true in circles and through corners. Increase power and sit in lengthenings for increased length of stride and then show clear transitions back to working gaits. Be more accurate in 1/2 circles into LY and be sure that leg yield does not lead with HQ.
