What is to you the main criteria (rythm, balance…) to optimize the approach of a fence in a course?

Straightness, even tempo, patience,
To me the horse needs to be in front of leg, in the good tempo, and one of the most important thing to me is a good trajectory :)
You shouldn't be "driving" to the to fence. You have to keep the same tempo and rhythm to a fence. To me the most important is, what a rider should do all the time, is whatever is needed to go with their horse over the fence.
