PURPOSE: To confirm that the horse demonstrates correct basics, and in addition to the requirements of Training Level, has developed the thrust to achieve improved balance and throughness and maintains a more consistent contact with the bit.
All trot work may be ridden sitting or rising, unless stated.

2ImpulsionDesire to move forward; elasticity of the steps; suppleness of the back; engagement of the hindquarters6.5213
31
3SubmissionWilling cooperation; harmony; attention and confidence; acceptance of bit and aids; straightness; lightness of forehand and ease of movements6.5213especially in canter tour horse need to be rounder to bridle to bascule over/thru back
32
4Rider’s Position and SeatAlignment; posture; stability; weight placement; following mechanics of the gaits66very slight chair seat.. this talented rider can get her thighs and lower leg down and back under her some more to facilitate improved calf and thigh contact which can support her seat. do not encourage this talented rider to lean behind vertical.. ( this is incorrect position and causes undue wear on rider discs, additionally we need her balanced OVER her seat bones . If a rider kleans behind the vertical they push the front of the saddle down forcing the horse's withers and shoulders DOWN.. losing throughness , to avoid bend and developing collection
33
5Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsClarity; subtlety; independence; accuracy of test6.56.5nice work keeping the geometry correct.. avoid leaning behind vertical and work to get horse rounder / closed in throat latch

What a cool pair!! Love you guys!!! it is not often I say I'd like to ride someone's horse.. but what a dear this horse looks to be! Work for improved roundness to bridle.. lunge with side rein?? Usually 10 minutes will help ....Good Luck. great team! thank you for this lovely turnout.
