I will sleep.

You can stay up ;D

I thought it was just an allergy, but this is beyond allergy. Took hayfever tablets as norm this morning, and another this evening. And just had a huge cider. Hayfever tablets and cider will ensure a good nights sleep LOL

In terms of leaving him entire to let him fill out a bit, geldings actually usually end up taller and broader than stallions.

Ok sorry Duffy! I just finally had a chance to watch the videos. The first one is obviously old as he is bum high as all get out which makes him look a little awkward. In the second video you can see his balance has changed, which makes him less stabby and flingy with the front legs and have a more "normal" trot.

He has big gaits. You will likely hate your life when it comes time to collect them (ask me how I know lol) and with that trot he is always going to try to err on the side of passage as an evasion. I like in the riding video that he is quick. Keep that quickness. If you have to sacrifice some progress in the name of keeping him quick and out in front of your leg then do so. The canter is not so bad and some jumping will probably help him (even free jumping and gymnastics with no rider). But I think the trot you're going to have to work at to develop correctly.

Otherwise I don't see anything glaring (although a confo shot would be nice), hopefully he passes the coach-check AND the vet-check!! Good luck!

I tried to get confo shots but my phone hates me. He's well built needs more work....I know he's only s baby but right now he's quit narrow and needs to fill out and have s bit more consistency in his work.

The girl that rode before me had to snap a branch off s tree...which he just stood for and then tried to eat...to get him forward. I got on and he clicked straight away, he dropped his head and really worked. You will have yo excuse my riding position, that's my 'safe' position when I ride new horses lol!

I see what you mean by collecting, but right now I've only ever done passage a couple of times on a school master so we will work to get there lol. Right now im just happy with his natural
