Critique my boy's outline.

After owning him for around 4 months, i've never really asked a lot of him. Just bonding with him etc.
My main goals have been on the ground, as I could barely lead him when I first got him.
Did some proper schooling, got him on the bit and engaged behind. My goal is to get a top line now, as his neck and back muscles are awful :/

Critique my babies first proper attempts at an outline and

Being engaged behind?

I would say based on that one picture the horse is traveling on the forehand. His left front is further underneath him bearing the most weight than his hind leg. Is he bent on a circle (appears to be) or moving on a straight line?

I think this picture was the first half of my schooling session. My friend said by the end he was no longer on the forehand. All my fault, too busy getting him bending at the start and I forgot all about his hind legs. And yes I was on a circle :)

We'd definitely need better pictures to critique anything. A video would be best, if you can get one.

Lunge with side reins over ground polls two times a week. He will get a top line in no time.
