Very nice pair with some very good basics. Horse lacks adequate push and power for lengthenings although he does not quicken which is good. Work to ask him to sit more which will help increase your length of stride and make canter-trot transitions better balanced. Allow a longer rein in stretchy circle and free rein to encourage horse to follow your hand down even more than you are.
