Unfortunately this video is very difficult to judge because it is dark, not level, and loses horse/rider at times. That said, this horse needs to allowed to go more forward with longer more expressive strides in a longer and more relaxed frame. Bend needs to come more honestly from the rider's seat and leg aids and less from the inside rein. Rider tends to either lean forward with her upper body or allow her leg to come out in front of her and lose her balance and rhythm. This seems to be a very elegant horse and there is potential for much higher scores with some attention to the basics for both horse and rider.
