He does tend to score quite well even when he feels atrocious like he did on the weekend. Naturally he is a rhythm machine, has a great back that appears to swing even through tension, and he holds his frame even if he's bracing against me like no tomorrow. I had to hold him up for the full first test, he was so against the hand, I felt like I couldn't move him into corners, leg yields he wasn't enough off my leg etc.
But because he just goes around, keeps his rhythm and looks 'pretty', he still scores ok if I manage to keep myself together, sit up in the saddle and look like I'm having a great time - while my arms are about to be hauled out of their sockets!
I'm someone who doesn't tend to go by my percentages and placings in comps, I go by how he felt and if it felt awful and scored well, I'm not happy!
