PURPOSE: To confirm that the horse demonstrates correct basics, and in addition to the requirements of Training Level, has developed the thrust to achieve improved balance and throughness and to maintain a more consistent contact with the bit. All trot work may be ridden sitting or rising, unless stated.JUDGE:Ida Norris

45
4Rider’s Position and SeatAlignment, posture, stability, weight placement, following mechanics of the gaits77hands to be slightly closer together
46
5Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsClarity, subtlety, independence, accuracy of test6.56.5see submission
47
This is a lovely talented pair. lateral poll flexion is affecting bend and throughness especially noticeable in the trot tour and in all movements going right. Simple changes must be clean and the walk rhythm must be carefully husbanded in those transitions. this horse shows a remarkable uphill balance that you will be able to capitalize on in coming level. some lovely moments!
