Super pair. Be sure to maintain flexion in direction of bend and encourage horse to come more up off the inside shoulder for more balance. Ask for more consistent stretch forward and down in FW by pushing hand towards horse not trying to pull back and push forward. Work on keeping horse feeling forward into transition to halt rather than stalling and getting out of balance. Best of luck with this fun horse!
