Hannah & Rosie return and begin with Ali by looking at how they can walk without 'the balloon deflating'. Rosie sees walk as ‘relax’, which isn’t ideal in a dressage test. Rosie likes to live ‘head down, bum up’, and before lockdown Ali and Hannah worked towards fixing this, and it's evident that Hannah has been working on the fixes, which is demonstrated by the first trot transition.
They then look at how Hannah lengthens her front, which goes with Rosie lengthening her underneath, they look at fixing this, as well as recapping little and big, and straightness on a circle in walk trot and canter.
It’s clear Hannah has been working hard over lockdown and the canter transitions are much improved.
