5Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsCorrect bend and preparation of transitions6.56.5needs better half halts and prepr for transitions- work on halts

6Geometry and AccuracyCorrect size and shape of circles and turns77good geometry
31
Very capable pair (and LOVELY turnout!) Work on allowing horse to relax more over the back into the hand for more swing and softer topline. Use core and half halts to maintain tempo rather than pulling back. Plan better for transitions so that horse is more able to use the hind legs rather than bracing aginst rider's hand. Talented pair with potential to move up with higher scores once some connection/throughness issues are resolved. Good luck!
