Capable pair but balance issues bring score down. Work on keeping enegry flowing from the hind end to keep poll as the highest point and to maintain better throughness and relaxation through back. Help horse with half halts in transitions for better balance. Rider needs to be a little stronger in her core and upper body to help horse stay more on her hind legs rather than on the shoulders. Sitting back will help horse weight the hind legs so that horse can be more expressive and bring her shoulders up rather than pulling herself from the shoulder. Good potential for better scores with added energy and balance. Good luck!
