this looks like an athletic horse.. kind and willing. rider is active.. work to get upper body correctly over seat.. leg too forward to day affecting posting adversely.. get leg down and back. upper body must be over seat not behind it. focus on up not down in posting and allow horse to have more reach and throughness as rider gets more balance. these team seems well suited. keep going ! be sure to use lower leg to 'ask" horse to go forward at transitions. no kicking.. :):)
