Forget headset completely.
What you want to see is a horse off its forehand (elevated rise in the front when moving not 'plunking' on the front end), cadence in its movement, and length in its stride.
When a horse is 'on the bit' they are not infront of or behind the verticle. But have achieved enough impulsion from behind to move fluidly and finish the connection through the bridle.
