33
Some very nice moments but horse needs to be forward and honest into rider's connection rather than rider trying to wrestle horse into her hand. Use half halts to better prepare horse for transitions, esp downwards, so that she is able to sit into them rather than running into her shoulders and becoming hollow and unbalanced. Work on accuracy (part of preparation for transitions) and start circle AT the letter and not beyond, work on goemetry of serpentine
