Really attractive horse with much potential. The main issue lowering the score is that the horse is braced in the bridle. Rider has a nice position and goo balance but her arms are fairly straight and the feel is bakcwards against the mouth rather than reaching forward. Spend time doing a lot of bending lines really using your inside leg and seat aids to push the horse into a softly receiving outside hand and then see if a soft release of your inside hand as a reward helps him become more willing to reach for you and connect. Best of luck with thei super horse.
