Talented pair but inaccuracies in ride lower score. Be sure to ride a 20m circle- not an oval or square- not 15 m. You lost quite a few points because of the shape of your figures. Try to maintain a consistent tempo in all three gaits- don't allow horses to slow but keep him forward and in front of your leg.
