|A nice team and a good performance. There is little to criticise.. :):). YOu do need to clearly get this horse stretching in the trot stretch circle and that may take some help from a teacher/trainer. ears and poll to be below the withers and reins to be soft enough. Use outside aids for bending in the corners and avoid leaning in or forward at the canter departs.. Lots of good moments here.|
