Hi, Paula, there is much to like about your test. You two present a confidence picture
with good accuracy in the movements. Your energy is fairly steady throughout the test
with an even tempo. Your horse shows good suppleness and acceptance of the bit is
demonstrated most of the time.
One area for you to work on is the transition into the canter. The poll becomes tight and
the neck raises. An exercise to improve this is to do some transitions on 15 or even 10
meter circles. Ride the circle in trot and increase the energy; then decrease the energy;
go back and forth between the two paces. When this becomes very fluid, instead of
increasing the energy of the trot, simply ask for canter. When in the canter on the circle,
don’t overbend the neck – allow him to be a little straighter in the neck but ask for more
suppleness in the jaw (that comes from your elbows in half halts).
Another thing to improve is your lengthening in trot and canter. Try going across the
long diagonal but slowing down – walking or even halting – for several steps over X.
Make sure you don’t lose straightness in these bigger gaits: are your stirrups even
weighted, are you posting straight, do your reins/hands feel evenly balanced? Often we
are so anxious to go faster that we lose our own straightness and balance. So practice
shorter bursts of energy at home and gradually increase the distance as your horse
becomes stronger and better balanced in this idea. Be sure your transitions into and
out of the lengthenings are clear! When coming down from a lengthening, I often
pretend that I need to make a 10m circle immediately so I need to rebalance and slow it
down so my horse does not go careening widely on that circle.
I found your position to be secure and well aligned. Your seat is independent and your
hands are quiet. You should have no problem executing with more success the
exercises discussed above.
