Further Remarks:Very nice pair. Overall relaxed, accurate, harmonious test. Tension in MW affects score- try to help horse relax more and don't rush the steps- marching forward is good but not at the expense of the rhythm. Trot loses rhythm also- consider rising to the trot to help horse give a clear 1-2 beat- posting like a beginner with an exaggerated up/down can help create more of a moment of suspension between footfalls. Encourage horse to reach more through the back in the right lead canter for longer strides and clear expression.
