2ImpulsionDesire to move forward with suppleness of the back and steady tempo.6.5213 back to be more supple- connection too inconsitent fro throughness.. steadier impulsion in trot might help

4Rider’s Position and SeatKeeping in balance with the horse6.56.5has a generally nice outside and seat but arms/elbow/wrist look stiff. possible tension in arms. wide parallel arms or arm tension may cause horse to curl.
33
5Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsCorrect bend and preparation of transitions66effect/connection/ poll low
34
pretty horse and rider.. I like this tidy turnout. I think this horse has potential and this rider has the beginnings of a lovely seat. Must work to establish more correct elasticity in contact and keep horse slightly more active in trot to the connection with attention to keeping soft contact ( arms relaxed) and poll more corectly placed.
