Since Fred is a halter horse, I don't have any expectations for him as a riding horse. I'd like him to be green broke at minimum, in case I sell him in the future. With his temperament and size, he'd be a great husband horse or something.

We've had three sessions so far and she backed Fred last week! He has been super good and not at all phased by having someone on his back. He has way more whoa than go though, so that is kind of interesting. He is not super quick at getting the concept of rein pressure (likely because he is chewing the ever-loving crap out of the bit!) and is a bit sticky with his front feet, but that will all come with time. He has been good about moving his hind end though and can do a turn on the fore already.
