Further Remarks: Capable pair. Work to develop a more elastic connection. ( Horse tends to get short & tight in the neck. Try riding a 15m circle and off a 1/2 stretch first in the walk and later in the trot. As you lengthen the outside rein and maintaining the bend on the inside rein slowly feed out the rein to a 1/2 stretch. Once you are in a 1/2 stretch with flexion step lightly into your outside stirrup and ask the horse to leg yield out 2-3 steps to 18m. Ride 18m circle in the same posture for a few circles and then step out to a 20m. Your goal is get the horse to lengthen the neck and not retract it.)
