4RiderPosition and seat. Correctness and effect of the aids.6.5213arms to be more elastic and forearms more triangulated to allow this talented horse to come through more frequently from back to front. wide hands dropping and pulling in and leaning into turn disturb this sensitive horse and he braces when turning due to these disturbances

What an elegant horse!! some nice moments in this test.. need to get your own turning aids straightened out. Must have weight in both stirrups while turning and use your wrists to turn rather than pulling in and leaning in. this talented horse can go far! attaching some tutorials to assist with centerlines and halt/salutes :)
