Did I mention there were a few airs above the ground performed in warmup and during the test?? Since we didn't actually go off course (pattern) there was no actual error, but did get a few "not performed"

You are of course correct. Shall we then mark the horse and rider down for an incorrect bend? Or do we call it an over bent leg yield at canter? Or how about shoulders in at canter? The horse did seem to be on three tracts...

Or the western term maybe, side pass at canter? Still a little over bent though, I believe side pass is to be performed with a straight horse, but I'm no expert on western

The impulsion was fabulous however, and they did not go off course!!

My friend's diva of a TB mare decided she was cold at her last show and wanted to go back to her trailer and blanket which she could see behind the judge, did a lovely piaffe when she halted at X after her last 2nd level test . Judge commented "beautiful suspension and impulsion before halt" Ha!
