Capable pair but horse is consistedntly against rider's hand with a a tight topline and hollow back. Rider tends to keep arms fairly straight which further causes tension in the mouth. Once rider is more independent in her seat and arms do not follow with rising and elbows are softer, horse will better be able to relax and soften to the hand and become more supple over the back. Work on using leg and seat aids to keep horse more honestly bending in his body. Good energy and push from HQ will help this partnership develop a better connection. Good luck!
