Attractive pair. Horse needs to be allowed to go more freely forward with longer strides and a longer topline rather than being ridden front to back. Work on honest bend not just overbend in neck. Encourage horse to follow your connection in both FW and stretch circle by giving rein forward and keeping leg on to keep energy. Ride transitions with more energy and allow strides to cover ground. Be careful of your circle placement at E/B. Start your circles at the letter so that circle is place correctly in the middle of the arena.
