31
Very attractive and honest horse with potential for higher scores. Rider needs to work on developing core strength to hold herself more upright and balanced over horse to help him balance better. Rider tends to lean forward with her upper body throwing horse onto the forehand. Once rider is more balanced from her core, encourage horse to go more actively forward and begin to develop more supple bend from leg and seat aids rather than by using reins.
