PURPOSE: To confirm that the horse demonstrates correct basics, and having achieved the thrust required in First Level, now accepts more weight on the hindquarters (collection); moves with an uphill tendency, especially in the medium gaits; and is reliably on the bit. A greater degree of straightness, bending, suppleness, throughness, balance and self-carriage is required than at First Level.RIDER #7085

Some lovely moments at canter but horse needs increased collection and engagement for this level. Medium and exrtended gaits needs power and ground cover. Horse struggles with lateral work at trot.
