Which hornbeam is it?

My immediate first thought is that that one branch (the left-hand branch in the second picture) is MUCH too large, and should be removed -- perhaps just where the smaller branches leave it near the lower end. The rest of the branches might also be shortened considerably. Then you can concentrate on developing a better overall branch system.

Moving to Bonsai Questions.
