Further Remarks: Love the energy but needs to be balanced with 1/2 halts and release. Elegant pair. (When schooling on the stretch circle try it in a smaller trot to let the horse find it's balance to stretch at this time. Also think sit heavy in the down phase of the post so you can help maintain the tempo. Try riding a 3 loop serpentine and do a 10m circle over the centerline in the new direction. We want to encourage the horse to be more supple in his neck. Take a moment in the circle & serpentine to soften the reins just to enourage a longer neck.)
