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.JUDGE:Robyn Nunnally

1GAITS (Freedom and regularity)6.516.5canter could have more jump and freedom
37
2IMPULSION (Desire to move forward; elasticity of the steps; suppleness of the back; engagement of the hindquarters)6212should be stronger in balance, power, and engagement for this level, esp in the canter
38
3SUBMISSION (Willing cooperation; harmony; attention and confidence; acceptance of bit and aids; straightness; lightness of forehand and ease of movements)6212willing horse but struggling with bend and balance today
39
4RIDER’S POSITION AND SEAT (Alignment; posture; stability; weight placement; following mechanics of the gaits)717
40
5RIDER’S CORRECT AND EFFECTIVE USE OF AIDS (Clarity; subtlety; independence; accuracy of test)616establish and maintain more supple connection; develop stronger leg aids
41
Some nice trot moments. Work to carry this over into your canter work by being a bit more energetic in the canter. Careful to keep the suppleness of the connection; the jaw and back become tight and lose the swing. Be clearer with bend in your lateral work and be sure to understand extended walk
