34
Well matched pair with nice energy and lateral suppleness. Work on horse coming more honestly through his back especailly in upward transitions. Develop increased push from HQ for more expressive lengthenings and higher scores. Work on keeping horse sitting in down transitions so that he stays soft and relaxed through his back rather than bracing against your hand.
