4Rider’s Position and SeatAlignment; posture; stability; weight placement; following mechanics of the gaits6.56.5stirrups not clearly on the ball of the foot and leg not clearly under the seat at times ( very slight chair seat adversely affecting balance and core)
33
5Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsClarity; subtlety; independence; accuracy of test6.56.5accuracy.. overhot almost all centerlines, haunches out through turns accuracy
34
A lovely horse with good beginning basics.. Rider focus on allowing this horse to lower neck slightly in the trot tour so the horse can come more over and through the back. Contact appears to RETRACT? Ie you might be PULLING BACKWARDS.. rather than half halting in an elastic way without retracting....
