Capable pair. Work on increasing the power from the HQ and allow horse to elongate her topline and her strides. Work on creating your bend more from leg and seat aids and less on the reins for less twisting and resistance. As horse bcomes more supple both laterally and longitudinally, scores will improve as will balance. Good luck!
