34
Talented rider with a very nice position and quiet hands. Work on keeping your horse more balanced both back to front and side to side. Horse is tight through back and neck and needs to lift his back and relax into your hand esp in FW and stretch circle. Overall good energy except in walk tour and horse stopped moving forward in stretch circle. I did not see you use your whip at all but you changed hands mutliple times. If you do not use the whip keep it in one hand throughout the test so that you don't interfere with your horse when switching it
