I know I just posted something, but I something else I want help with. I really want to become a better rider and do good at the A and AA shows next year in hunters and medal so I would like some help on things I could add to my list of flatwork I already have. I would like to at LEAST be able to say that I qualified for Pony Finals. (and I know what I need to win to qualify). If you need them, here are some videos that I think might help. And here is my list I have created. Also, if the links don't work, tell me and I will fix them. I'm on my iPad so I don't exactly know how well this is going to work out. =)

or you could look up my channels: HorseLoverHunter and Smolly373

Here is my list:
Collecting and extending w/t/c strides with impulsion.
Good and steady pace all the time.
Even reins.
No stirrup work (walk and trot for now; canter when ready).
Spirals with leg only.
Bending to the inside.
Getting his headset while on the bit.
More heel depth.
Turning shoulders.
Canter polls with shortening and lengthening strides.
Even hands in two point.
Flying changes (figure 8s and serpentines).
Simple changes (steady trot to canter, canter to trot, canter to walk, walk to canter).
Trot up up down.
Haunches in.
Haunches out.
Leg yielding.
Inside leg to outside rein.
Riding down the road.

Thanks in advanced! Sorry this is kind of long.
