Well thought choreography. Work to develop a little more suppleness and freedom in gaits to increase scores in technical.

Extra Feedback:

Hi Points: First of all, I have to tell you that I have never seen an Intro Freestyle that I liked as much as yours! You picked music that doesn't drag a large horse down, that matches the gaits, and for the most part, your phrasing is "right on". Phrasing is when you change gaits, or make a movement, with the change in the music--wither editing two pieces, or just a change within the music--like the jog.

Low points: Halts. The halt within the test needed balance. The final halt didn't seem prepared--as if you arrived at the end of the music before you were ready. Another problem was the unsteady connection in the working walk.

Focus: Balance and time your aids at the walk for the horse to accept connection more smoothly. Think/plan ahead when you get slightly behind your music to make it look like you planned it that way.

Working ideas: In the walk, try not to produce a forward walk with seat. A lighter, quick leg, and a following seat will get you more forward reach. Practice giving the rein away at the working walk and retaking it softly. First, give the inside rein, and then take it back gently. Repeat on the outside rein. Then both reins and retake. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat--until the horse accepts soft contact. The reins should feel elastic. They let should be on and light. The seat should give the horse's back room to come up and be rounder.

I was a little disturbed by your return to the trot after the walk. I know you might have been thinking that you needed to start the trot so your second loop would be completely in the walk. When you think you might be ahead of your walk music--just make the diagonal line a little shorter (r to v). Or, if you are behind your music, make it longer (m to k)--or some variation, so that you can start your trot at or before A, and be with the music. You don't have to start the trot at A. But, if you are starting the loop at A, you must be trotting. (You can start it before A.)

Prepare halts before you get to that point in the music. It might be a little slower to create, but, you have a better chance of getting at least the front square--and not braced. Work to create halts from a RELEASE of the half halt. This takes practice. Just before the horse reacts to your aids for the halt--soften your aids, so the horse relaxes and balanced. A horse that is braced balances on your hands. Your aids should encourage the horse to balance itself.

Good luck! Work on this program. And, I hope you will progress to Basic, and higher, as well.
