Difficult to judge/see when rider is at far end of ring.........Attractive pair. Potential for higher scores a horse becomes more balanced and straight with push from HQ. Work to develop more supple bend and flexion on circles and in corners. Horse will become less hollow as there is more forward energy and rider becomes stronger in her core and more able to balance independently of hand.
