Thanks for that, very constructive!
Yes, I am originally a hunter rider. lol. Stuck out like a sore thumb, didn't I? haha
Yeah, I knew I overshot the CL, kicked myself for it later, and also was late coming out of canter after my first circle, (you can see my face! haha). Didn't ride her forward enough through the trot, so it made it very hard to get her going through the canter transition.
Didn't help that there's nothing Rhubarb hates more than getting wet! She tip toes through puddles back home, and pulls all sorts of amusing faces. Working on getting her moving forward through them back home, but she just enjoys being a troll too much!
I had a second test following this, which I didn't film sadly (my girlfriend was doing her own test in the next arena), which I scored much better at. I rode her more forward through her trot circles so that when it came to her canter trans, I didn't end up leaning forward so much to get her going (it's a bad habit of mine, aagh!). I mentally have to tell myself to sit up staight and shoulders back, or I curl in on myself. :(
I was proud of myself with my hands and arms through! :) Usually I've got a bad habit or straightening my elbows and locking them, cause she likes to lean on the reins when she gets tired.
Also on my comments, she got distracted through her free walk. You couldn't hear it, but her paddock buddy, Morgan was in the next arena, and she was nickering to him, and then when we left the arena, Morgan was on his way out and she let out this HUGE neigh that made evewryone turn around! aah! Embarrassing!
