2CTrack left, working trot rising.Balance and bend in turn.77lacked poll flexion left at the turn ( just swivel your own head keeping it level and turn your left wrist slightly -- thumb down and out ever so slightly and you will have fantastic poll flexion .. keep weight on outside stirrup slightly as you turn-no leaningin or out) stay level at your core and swivel 2-3 degrees only

8BCircle right 20 meters, working trot rising.Roundness and size of circle; clear trot rhythm and bend.77geometry ok and horse nicely round: lacks strong continuous impulsion. rider work on elastic athletic posting.. the longer you are up in the air and the higher you post the more "air5: time a horse has to cover ground and push against the ground for suspension and 'spring" Posting higher and stay up longer to improve the quality of the trot.. STAND on both stirrups and go UP!!! Swing your hips slightly at the top of the post.. think about jogging/running.. posting is athletic....
