This video was poor quality and very difficult to judge but I did the best I could. There were many times I was unable to see the horse infront of the rider and the zoom did not follow horse at the far end of the arena. Attractive pair with nice energy and steady tempo. Work to develop a softer topline with the horse more honestly working from behind into a soft connection. Ride transitions from HQ so that horse remains through his back rather than from the rein so that horse hits the bridle and hollow. Issues with the walk decrease scores. Try to stay relaxed and swinging in the medium walk to encourage horse to cover ground rather than shortening strides and jigging. Potential for much higher scores.
