I will certainly get you a video this weekend! Thanks!
If the vet doesn't want him to do sliding stops anymore, I would guess the horse has arthritis in his hocks, which would make using them heavily very painful. Barrel racing is very hard on the hocks. If he's crow hopping at speed, my first guess is that he's in pain and trying to tell you that turning faster hurts.

Nope not his hocks, he dosnt want to risk him getting arthritis. He dosnt crow hop when were doing anything else like galloping on him out on trail and pastures! He is not hurting, thanks for asking though!
