Very nice pair. Rider has a tendency to sit a little behind the vertical which causes horse to tighten the back. When rider is more upright in her position, horse whos swing and throughness. Work on increased power and ground cover in lengthened gaits, and ground cover in FW- not just getting faster. Trot lengthens show good lift in shoulders but need thrust. Leg yields are labored- work to keep horse more on HQ and fluid to maintian consistent tempo and position. Horse needs stretch and balance in stretchy circle hoenstly reaching over the back into a soft hand.
