Very nice horse with good energy and expressive gaits. Rider is blocking horse through the back with a restrictive hand and unsteady seat which causes horse to brace and hollow. Some lovely moments of harmony but inconsistent. When rider is stronger in her position and seat and is more able to control speed with half halts and balance rather than rein horse will more willingly relax through her back and scores will increase significantly. Lack of zoom makes this video very difficult to judge.
