33
5Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsClarity; subtlety; independence; accuracy of test66throughness and connection need improvement
34
Very attractive and capable pair. Work on channeling the lovely forward energy into a soft and steady connection rather than allowing the head to swing and the back to hollow as stride get quick. Work to develop increased thrust in lengthened gaits rather than allowing horse to run and become tight in back. Use effective half halts to keep horse better balanced esp in corners before transitions. Pay attention to straightness in canter.
