PURPOSE: To confirm that the horse demonstrates correct basics, and having achieved the thrust required in First Level, now accepts more weight on the hindquarters (collection); moves with an uphill tendency, especially in the medium gaits; and is reliably on the bit. A greater degree of straightness, bending, suppleness, throughness, balance and self-carriage is required than at First Level.RIDER #6889

COLLECTIVE MARKSPOINTSTOTALREMARKS
37
1GAITS (Freedom and regularity)6.516.5Walk and right lead canter need to develop more freedom.
38
2IMPULSION (Desire to move forward; elasticity of the steps; suppleness of the back; engagement of the hindquarters)6212Needs to be more supple over topline, and, balanced more over hindquarters for better engagement.
39
3SUBMISSION (Acceptance of the bridle. Attention and confidence. Harmony. Lightness of the forehand. Ease of movements.)5.5211Mouth open. Avoids connection. Balance on forehand.
40
4RIDER’S POSITION AND SEAT (Alignment; posture; stability; weight placement; following mechanics of the gaits)717Basic position fairly correct. Arms could be more following.
41
5RIDER’S CORRECT AND EFFECTIVE USE OF AIDS (Clarity; subtlety; independence; accuracy of test)6.516.5Aids need to create more throughness over topline and develop increased uphill balance.
42
Horse and rider show ability to achieve higher scores. Work to improve balance and self-carriage in all movements. Contact needs to be more elastic in "feel" on reins; and, seat/weight aids (half halts) need to encourage horse to take more weight over hindquarters.
