4Rider’s Position and SeatKeeping in balance with the horse66slight chair seat/ work to get thigh and lower leg more under seat for more effective rider balance.. arms need to be more independent from the seat with more elastic elbows
32
5Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsCorrect bend and preparation of transitions5.55.5a lot of steering with the reins today.. need more correct steering support with correct weight placement and lower leg to support turns and bending. test accuracy

this is an attractive team and they appear to get along well. horse needs to be more correctly through the back. rider to be more balanced in her equitation to facilitate improved steering and bending aids to improve test confidence and accuracy.
