Lovely horse who is tense today. Rider also becomes tense an gets hard in han an forward in upper body which is natural but rider nees to work to stay relaxed and give confidence to horse at those times. (Easy for me to say!) As horse's back relaxes and the steps become longer the scores will improve dramatically. It is difficult to judge this test as parameters of arena are not clear an camera bounces.
