PURPOSE: Tests provide an introduction to the discipline of Western Dressage; the horse performs only at the walk and jog. The rider should demonstrate correct basic position, use of basic aids, and understanding of the figures. The horse should show relaxation; and harmony between horse and rider is important. The horse accepts the aids and influence of the rider. The jog should be a natural gait within the horse's scope and should demonstrate a swinging back.RIDER #5466

1GaitsFreedom and regularity6.56.5freedom
25
2ImpulsionDesire to move forward with suppleness of the back and steady tempo.66not clearly in front of the leg especially at the jog trans at B / additionally looking for the walk and jog to be slightly more ground covering/ strides were at times short
26
3Rider’s Position, Seat, and HandsWell-balanced elastic seat demonstrating vertical, centered alignment, with light independent contact from hand(s)66alignment.. need to be slightly more centered over both stirrups, rider occasionally leaning to turn and at times has more weight in one stirrup, Hands and reins to be lower and closer together, get hands around and in front of the horn.... to allow for elbow bend( elasticity) which will facilitate softer topline connection
27
4Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsEvidenced by the horse's responsiveness; steady elastic connection cultivating athletic expression. Accuracy - precise placement of the figures and transitions, the effectiveness of the rider's aids determines the accurate fulfillment of the required movements of the tests6.56.5diagonals and centerlines quite straight but improved use of the corner/ short sides needed and more preparation for transitions
28
5HarmonyThe horse accepts the aids and influence of the rider with attention, relaxation and confidence; and demonstrates a willing partnership between horse and rider resulting in a free flowing performance6.5213kind willing horse and has harmony but topline was stiff ( ie back and at times inverted) Looking for you to exhibit more soft elastic connection for free flowing performance
29
What a pretty horse! Love the color!! I do think this is a good team!! Work for more elastic connection ( arms, hands ) today the back and topline were stiff, horse seems like it was unwilling to take weight behind and stride forward- both walk and jog seemed tight. Exhibiting more active forward and then addressing softer connection/topline will improve scores.
