What a cool horse and rider TEAM!!! this horse is trying to be attentive for this developing rider. this is a good start... now rider work on your posting balance, hands closer together to be more elastic and independent and relax knees and stretch thigh down and back so you get up over your seat.. at the moment your seat is behind your legs ( legs in front of sea- so you drag on the posting .. that can mean horse is sluggish aslo :):)). Gain more points by being super accurate. keep going!
