Sandie looks much happier going over the 3rd and 4th course, then she did going over the first one. Since you did do several courses, it is fair that you would both get tired, and stop doing the easy things to make the course go smoothly, like the lead changes.
If it was me, I would do the starter level, even though it has the same size jumps as VG so that I could have a challenge with the new dressage test, but still not have to worry about the jump size so I could have another whole year of working on lead changes. (I don't event, but ride hunters, but if I did event, that is what I would do. I could move up a division in hunters this year, but am opting to stay at the same one so that I can have a better position, and be solid where I am before moving up.)
When you go through an in-and-out, you are better to just stay forward. That way you arent going foward back forward back and can stay out of the way.
