What a fantastic team!!!~! I love this horse!!! Gorgeous! You have a very good start on your basics and are riding quietly.. focus next on some very small lateral poll flexion ... accomplished by close hands and turning the wrist. You could be getting from 8 to 10 on your centerlines if you focus a bit more on them.
