opinions on Harry Horse

Hello,
I would like to get some opinions on the conformation of Harry the horse. Harry is a 12 year old standardbred who has been undersaddle for a little under 2 years. I am just wondering if his conformation is pointing him towards anything in particular. I have included some photos and some video. I am riding in the video during our 5th lesson in english tack and 7th over all lesson. I spent about 10 years out of english gear and rode trails for the majority of that time. As a result, I am getting my rhythm back and its clear. So please try to not judge me overly harshly and I know I throw him off because of that. The plans for him are mostly pleasure horse. So, there is no real competitive push for anything. I just like to goof around but I want to goof around well.

Okay, so got the video. Again, less then 2 year under saddle and the fifth lesson in english tack and only 7th lesson in after a 10 year break from lessons. So, I know hands need to be quieter and he would be much better if I was better. We are learning together.

Its hard to tell very much about his conformation but he looks decent to me, and definitely not like the standardbreds that I'm used to! He has a lovely face and a very nice, albeit not in rhythm yet, trot. Slightly straight shoulder but not bad, possibly tied in at the knee and standing under himself in one picture, decent topline and hip, and a well connected neck with a good back.

I think with some more lessons and time you guys will be looking phenominal! Is there a chance that you could get lunge line lessons from your trainer, or maybe work stirrupless? I know this isnt rider critique but I'd love to see you learning not to balance on his neck and the reins so much (I used to do it a lot as well) and really start using your core to straighten and push yourself up. It will really help both of you and lunging is the perfect way to do this :)
