Very nice horse but he needs to be stronger and more powerful in lengthenings with correct straightness in canter, Horse needs to be honest and relax through the back reaching for the rider's hand in FW and stretchy circle. Keep balance and position in LYs. Capable rier but consider rising the trot which is allowed at this level to help horse come more up in back and increase throughness.
