4Rider’s Position and SeatKeeping in balance with the horse66needs leg more under rider/ hands need to be more independent. often very very wide and low and appear to be pulling backwards. work for elastic soft connection to mouth
29
5Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsCorrect bend and preparation of transitions66see above and accuracy// ride corners and short sides
30
6Geometry and AccuracyCorrect size and shape of circles and turns66
31
I like this active /forward horse. rider needs to be softer with hand and hands closer together. use short sides and corners. work of hands very close together and more independent from seat.
