Very nice pair with relaxation and some energy. Be careful to ride circles the correct size and shape and to ride corners so that horse is comfortably balanced- horse does not to make 90 degree turns! I appreciate rider's soft hand but you need to keep your fingers closed on the reins- your horse tends to pull the rein and it becomes longer and, as the rein gets long, so does the horse's frame and the tempo tends to slow. Show more clear difference between free and medium walks- shorter reins and increased energy in the medium walk so that horse feels as if he is marching in a parade.
