Some very nice basics and good energy. Once horse is more committed to the connection and steadier in the hand, scores will increase. Work encourage horse to push from the HQ into your soft receiving hand- remember he can not hit a moving target so keep hand quiet and steady and change tension of connection to reward and for half halts. Best of luck.
