Elegant pair. Horse tends to be hollow and tight through topline. Rider tends to sit on the back of her saddle so that she leans slightly backwards. Work on rider developing a more balanced position with a stronger leg under her to help horse come more through his back. Rider has very soft hands that encourage the horse to seek the connection and these hands with a more balanced position will be quite lovely. Good luck!
