When horse curls under like that, ask him to go MORE forward and momentarily ease rein contact so he moves up more. Don't pull him up. Make him lift his own head, and easiest to do if he is asked to leap forward with "more!"
Being on the forhand is habitiual for many horses, but it is usually due to the way they are or have been ridden; too much hauling back on the rein, and possible the rider herself leaning to much forward and looking down. I know, because I have had these faults myself.
