77Quality of halt and transitions. Throughness, fluency, straightness. Accuracy in number of diagonal steps.square halt.. feet drag in reinback ( to correct feet draggin in rb work rb in hand and then reschool under saddle. keep lower leg more supportive of trunk... the schaukel ( swing exercise ) can be helpful . be sure you are not using too much hand while in rb.. That can cause dragging also

6MVExtended trot66Regularity, elasticity, balance, energy of hindquarters, overtrack. Lengthening of frame. Transition to extended trot.horse does not appear to clearly track up... at any rate even if it is video perspective he need to cover more ground for extended trot/// some horses are not sound enough to do much more-- if he is revisit some cavalletti on the ground for lengthening, work to ask the shoulders to come up.. ie cadence a then work to cover ground... the key is get the hind legs to thrust more and the shoulders to stay higher while traveling..

5 half-passes to either side of centre line with flying change of leg at each change of direction, the first half-pass to the left and the last to the left of 3 strides, the others of 6 strides

Flying change of leg

Track to the right
6212Quality of canter. Uniform bend, collection, balance, fluency from side to side. Symmetrical execution. Quality of flying changesriders body out of orientation with the horse and is often in the way ( work long half passes focusing on riders core in center of the horse and sitting IN the direction horse is moving, when you make a flying change and develop bend in the new direction the core must stay centered.. horse and rider out of balance throughout this exercise and horse often not engaged ( ie over his own center of balance)

Collected canter
428Correctness, balance, fluency, uphill tendency, straightness. Quality of canter before and afterunderstandably you had trouble at change 4 which is your left leg ( this is connected with your position not being centered). the changes got shorter and shorter.. they must go forward and cover ground.. the further along you went the more out of the saddle your seat got... stay centered and balanced.. keep left leg closer and further back to start.. if it has to swing farther the horse is late

Quality of canter before and afterlabored.. rider is Leaning:: her seat and thighs are against the saddle in the way of the pirouette, and her seat is in the way of the horse. rider needs to gently LOOK with your head around the turn.. up body in the center ( do NOT lean back) this horse manages to get the job done even with the rider in the way. ie left shoulder and hip is up and forward and between the pirouettes rider is leaning left

what a wondergul schoolmaster. he is very kindly . what a great opportunity to learn this level with ahorse like this!----- additional comments: At this level cadence and impulsion/thrust are essential for marks above 5-6 , I suspect you work hard to keep this horse soundenough to do this work. His strides look limited today as evidenced by his lackof tracking up, lack of ground cover in all gaits and occcasional irregularity. Despite all of that you are working in a hramoniious quiet fashin and I suspect you would like to get somes 60's on this kindly horse. have you worked the piaffe in hand or in long lines to establish it more without wieght ? ( this is not always possible I understand.. but for aging horses working it withou weight can sometimes improve it .. then add therider. ) work to be sure that you have reviewed the correct aids for piaffe.. most significant is the failure to maintain diagonal of the piaffe. If youcan get this horse sounder/ stronger to take weight try to ride the passage forward to cover ground. for the zig -zag canter reivew long single half passes and pay close attention to the quality and possitioning of the horse. the one time changes must be ridden forward ( they must not get shorter.. start all sequential changes with BOTH legs further back on the horse.. be sure yourleft leg is correct when you start. rider to be in the center of the horse.. the leg must be ON... rolling the horse back and forth ( riders think they "swing" the leg... if you get into that then eventually the leg leg gets so far out of position you are late with a swing.... -- then no change . practise ridne only a few ones realyy forward coevering ground.. like 5-6 then canter 3 steps foreward and then resume.... YOU must stay correctly centerd in the saddle... You are a talented quiet rider that I appreciate. but the there is one problem.. your psoas muscles have pulled your left pelvis up and forward/ you are not chiropractically straight ofr level at the hips or shoulders. you can see it contantly in the tape.. left shoulder up and forward. you are sitting too much to the left and the left thigh and leg are looser ( makes the apperaance of left stirrup longer) saddle shifts left?? your stirrup irson should be exactly on the center of the ball of your foot where the boot crease is located. YOu are a good rider but this over use of right leg and seat affect alot at the GP level.. You are oput of popsition in the zig-zag, pirouettes and changes... amazingly the horse pulled off the first pirouette with you actually IN HIS WAY... wonderful horse ( you owe him cookeis:):)) . Look at your zig-zag you are often way behind him and turned in the wrong direction. leaning...... You are generally quiet and he seems willing ... so get back to equitational basices.... work to get the horse as sound and strong as you can and then focus on clearly riding as well as posible to help each other.. you can do this!!!
