Proceed working trot
Regularity and quality of trot; willing, calm transitions; straightness; attentiveness; immobility (min. 3 seconds)5.55.5over shot centerline (if you are on the line You will not be able to see A as you watch yopur video) work for straightness at halt / you have an elegant salute but I suggest holding your arm out just a bit more like 40 degree angle and for at least 2 seconds so it is clearly more visible :) allows for 3 seconds of immobility )

3SubmissionAcceptance of steady contact, attention, and confidence.6212need a rounder connection to the bridle to achieve more bend, balance and bascule in the back ( back suppleness)

4Rider’s Position and SeatKeeping in balance with the horse6.56.5this developing rider is coming along with good leg position and seat.. posting could be clearer at the top of the pos.. needs a bit more height and swing at the top of the post to encourage horse to reach forwr4ad in trot strides.. arms to become closer together and more elastic.. at the moment they are slightly stiff and still moveing with your body as you post .. imagine posting "though" your arms that remain sqishy and elastic as your body posts "through" them.. :):)
30
5Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsCorrect bend and preparation of transitions66horse to be in rounder connection, need more sophisticated truning and bending aids, centerlines to be improvwed ... as there are 2 of them :):)
31
I really like this horse... soooooo willing to keep forward for this rider. this is a good team . Rider is coming along.. good work on your legs and seat.. now get independent hands/arms .. keep going!
