This is a very capable rider however she allows horse to run the show rather than being the driver herself. Horse starts with some energy and connection and then rider allows reins to become long- as rein lengthen, horse stops connecting to hand and tempo slows and strides become shuffling. Ride your horse energetically forward with a closed hand (not a hard pulling hand) so that rein stays the same length. You show such nice planning into bending lines and transitions- now add impulsion and connection and you will be scoring much, much better!
