4Rider’s Position and SeatAlignment; posture; stability; weight placement; following mechanics of the gaits6.56.5thigh need to be more vertical to enable correct lower leg position and aids
33
5Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsClarity; subtlety; independence; accuracy of test66reins often loose and half halt to be more effective
34
this is an attractive team!! work for more effective elastic half halts, with rounder connection at this level keeping soft elastic rein in contact.

*In order for the judge to see if you are on the centerline the camera must be CENTERED on the centerline directly behind C when you enter at A and for the entire centerline
