3SubmissionAttention, confidence, ease of the movements, acceptance of the bit, lightness of forehand5210horse not on the bit today. reins Long? this horse needs to be on the bit ( closed at the poll and round to connection) , marginal bending today// affected all lateral work and some straightness issues

4Rider's Position and SeatCorrectness and effect of the aids.5.5211some alignment problem. left hip and shoulder are higher/ and forward. rider exhibiting a collapse over left rib cage. core and seat need to be strengthened to be independent and stable for collection . Effect in this test: i.e. all !.2 passes need bend, horse not clearly closed at poll and in connection today
36
I think this pair can do a lot more and I really like this horse! ( Rider: focus on improved core and independent seat/elastic hands so you can correctly utilize 1/2 halts for this talented horse. this horse MUST BE ON THE BIT.. then re affirm correct 1/2 pass bend and angles. Keep Impulsion and engagement in all of the test. If necessary do some cross-training to confirm the horse on the bit, while rider focuses on correct seat and aids. Keep Going! I can see this one piaffing!
