PURPOSE: To confirm that the horse demonstrates correct basics, and having achieved the thrust required in First Level, now accepts more weight on the hindquarters (collection); moves with an uphill tendency, especially in the medium gaits; and is reliably on the bit. A greater degree of straightness, bending, suppleness, throughness, balance and self-carriage is required than at First Level.RIDER #6279

5RIDER’S CORRECT AND EFFECTIVE USE OF AIDS (Clarity; subtlety; independence; accuracy of test)6.516.5need accuracy, uphill balance and clearer aids
42
A lovely horse and looks like it has potential. today shoulder ins must be more correctly ridden and clear definition of medium paces. At times there were some conflicting aids. More correct camera use ( landscape view and more zoom see the BDS website.... for really good directives) will help with a clearer evaluation for you and you may be more clearly rewarded if we can see your performance. good luck !

We need landscape view from your camera.. ie turn it on its side. Especially at this level you need to keep the horse in the last 3rd of the landscape view screen in order for us to evaluate your increasingly difficult patterns correctly. good luck. we can give you better feedback and reward your performance better if we can see it!
