Critique horse and rider- English attempt

I would love a critique of my horse and my riding. We're working on switching from western pleasure to a little english. Our cantering is more of a pleasure lope I know but toward the end it got a little better. I know some of my problems but would love some advice for me and my mare. Thank you in advance.

Also she's two months pregnant so that's what I'm going to blame her belly on. It couldn't possibly be fat, right? ha

Very difficult to see anything much, half the time you are out of sight and always to far away.
What is obvious is that the horse is not moving forward. The pace needs to be a
Lot more active.

She needs some contact so she bends to the inside on her circle. Very pretty mare! You may need a crop to encourage her to step up and go forward.
