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:Ida Norris

41
an attractive horse for sure.. this hose must be clearly on the bit at this level.. round to the bridle and closed at the jaw/poll. has potential but the basics of being on the bit must be addressed. then address straightness, accuracy and bend to improve throughness and engagement.
