5Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsCorrect bend and preparation of transitions5.55.5transitions need balance
33
Energetic horse with lovely uphill canter. Scores will improve once rider is able to drive horse more from HQ with a softer hand to receive the energy. Horse is currently propelling himself into the rider's hand and rider is bracing to try to control him. LOTS of half halts to teach horse to more honestly carry himself and use his HQ for balance rather than using reins.
