Definitely a beautiful mover without a bit. Collected, some but not quite actual collection...hindquarters are not coming through as much as they can.
However, the rider is using it as if it was bitted. Horse dropping its head, head behind the vertical...etc.
Dressage whether bitted or bitless should be presented under the exacting stipulations of Article 401. That means we school poll high nose in front of the vertical.
