Further remarks: Talented pair with good basics. (Try riding forwad and back in the trot a few times until the horse thinks forward when you put your leg on. Once that happens after you come back ask for the canter instead of the forward trot. This should make the up trans more crisp. Ride a 15m circle with bend and feed a little outside rein. Slowly keep feeding inside and outside rein but always maintaing the bend. The circle helps stretching. Make sure your seat is following in the stretch.)
